Synopsis: This volume offers to general and specialist readers alike the fullest and most complete survey of the development of science in the eighteenth century. It is designed to be read as both a narrative and an interpretation, and also to be used as a work of reference. While prime attention is paid to Western science, space is also given to science in traditional cultures and to colonial science. The contributors, world leaders in their respective specialties, engage with current historiographical and methodological controversies and strike out positions of their own.

Review: "This comprehensive work surveys the development of science during the Enlightenment, when European science extended the Scientific Revolution into new areas.... Those already familiar with the century in general will find the specific essays on individual sciences of particular interest... Recommended." Choice

Book Description Book Condition: New. This volume offers the fullest and most complete survey of the development of science in the eighteenth century, exploring the implications of the 'scientific revolution' of the previous century and the major new growth-points, particularly in the experimental sciences. While the primary focus is on western science, space is also given to science in traditional cultures and colonial science. The coverage strikes a balance between analysis of the cognitive dimension of science itself and interpretation of its wider social, economic and cultural significance. The book addresses science in society, the scientific disciplines, special themes such as scientific illustration and voyages of discovery, and the ramifications and impacts of science on religion, culture, philosophy, commerce and technology. [A] rich collection of material . . . TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT. Bookseller Inventory # 2388
