The Scientific Revolution

Book Overview
There was no such thing as the Scientific Revolution, and this is a book about it. With this provocative and apparently paradoxical claim, Steven Shapin begins his bold, vibrant exploration of the origins of the modern scientific world view. Shapin's treatise on the currents that engendered modern science is a combination of history and philosophy of science for the interested and educated layperson.--Publishers Weekly. 30 photos.
