About this product
- DescriptionBased on the observation that the enterprise of science is, and has been, directed toward two distinct but frequently conflated ends - doing and knowing, this title considers how science as such has evolved, and how it has marshaled itself to make sense of the world. It is designed for aficionados, as well as historians of science.
- Author BiographyPeter Dear is professor of science and technology studies and history at Cornell University. He is the author of Revolutionizing the Sciences: European Knowledge and Its Ambitions, 1500 - 1700 and Discipline and Experience: The Mathematical Way in the Scientific Revolution, the latter published by the University of Chicago Press.
