Description
 
Lewis Pyenson (au); Susan Sheets-Pyenson (au). Explores the interaction between scientific practice & public life from antiquity to the present. Shows how, in Asia, Europe, & the New World, scientific expression has been allied closely with changes in three distinct areas of society: the institutions that sustain science; the moral, religious, political, & philosophical sensibilities of scientists themselves; & the goal of the scientific enterprise. Following the establishment of institutions of higher learning, scientific societies, & museums, the authors trace how the bodies that determine scientific tradition & guide innovation have acquired their authority. Examines the relationship between scientists, militarists, & industrialists in modern times. Illustrations.
