9780075543619: The Cultural Meaning of The Scientific Revolution

Jacob (history, New School for Social Research) proposes that the science of the 17th and 18th centuries was eventually accepted because it was made compatible with larger political and economic interests. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

From Library Journal:

Scholars have long attributed major scientific discoveries to a few men of genius who worked more or less independently of society. Historian Jacob endeavors to show that scientific progress from the time of Copernicus and Galileo was in fact an integral part of Western culture, influenced by certain larger historical developments such as the Protestant Reformation, the invention of printing, and the decline of feudalism. Subsequent discoveries in the 17th and 18th centures became increasingly acceptable to the public because they had become more directly applicable to the industrial and technological needs of European culture. Thoroughly researched and comprehensively documented. Raymond Frey, Bergen Community Coll., Paramus, N.J.
