About this product
- DescriptionIn this book, the author uses alchemy as a means to discuss the thinning boundary between the natural and the artificial. Focusing primarily on the period between 1200 and 1700, he examines the labors of pioneering alchemists and the responses to their efforts. This book imbues a millennium-old scientific and ethical debate with modern relevance.
