Speculative Truth: Henry Cavendish, Natural Philosophy, & the Rise of Modern Theoretical Science
Russell McCormmach (au). This first part of this volume contains a detailed biography & commentary on Lord Henry Cavendish, the British physicist active in the late 18th & early 19th cent. who is widely considered the first full-time scientist. The second part is the inaugural full text pub. of Cavendish’s long-missing paper that reveals for the first time his theory of heat, which would not be surpassed for over half a century. Cavendish wrote it for pub., but for unknown reasons withheld this work. In treating Cavendish’s thinking, McCormmach offers a window into natural philosophy, its character, goals, possibilities, & limitations. This book yields a fascinating discourse on the rise of scientific attitudes & ways of knowing -- virtually the birth of modern science.
