Age of Science and Revolution, 1600-1800: The Medieval and Modern World
Toby E. Huff (au)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
The 17th and 18th centuries were a period of questioning and discovery, of philosophy and scientific experimentation. Such scientists as Galileo, Kepler, and Newton studied the world around them and offered new ways of understanding the earth’s place in the cosmos. It was also the era when thinkers as diverse as René Descartes, Adam Smith, and Mary Wollstonecraft asked challenging questions about human nature and society. It was a time, too, of trade and travel. This narrative shows how the Scientific Revolution spread to the areas of philosophy and politics to produce an intellectual awakening called the Enlightenment, and how new political systems emerged from this brew of new science, ideas, and contact between cultures.
