Description

As more and more historians acknowledge the central significance of science and technology with that of modern society, the need for a good, general history of the achievements of the Scientific Revolution has grown. Scientific Culture and The Making of the Industrial West seeks to explain this historical process by looking at how and why scientific knowledge became such an integral part of the culture of Europe in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and how this in turn lead to theIndustrial Revolution. This comparative study not only looks at England, and its success, but follows through with the history of France, the Netherlands, and Germany.
