The birth of modern science

Paolo Rossi ; translated by Cynthia De Nardi Ipsen

This history of the birth of modern science shatters the illusion that science is a drya and divorced from culture by exploring the powerful clashes between traditions and value systems that gave rise to it. The author shows how many of the characteristics that distinguish science today emerged in the midst of the wars and plagues of the seventeenth century and defines what was new about this form of knowledge.
