A dozen historians of ancient Greek philosophy, the various exact and life sciences, and medicine, focus on the fifth and fourth centuries BC to explore the definition of science and the demarcation of particular sciences, the interplay of theory and observation, and whether philosophical debates occasioned the changes that led to the emergence of new sciences. The essays derive from a 1986 conference (location not noted). No subject index. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

Book Description Garland Publishing, Inc., U.S.A., 1991. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Good. This is an ex-library book, but with only a few library markings. Otherwise, the hardcover book is near very good with shelfwear and lightly bumped corners. There is no dust jacket (I believe it was issued without one). A nice example of a very scarce resource. Expedited international shipping is not available. The delivery expectation for international shipping is 7-32 business days, depending upon customer location. Ex-Library.
