The Scientific Revolution
by Steven Shapin




Overview -
"There was no such thing as the Scientific Revolution, and this is a book about it." With this provocative and apparently paradoxical claim, Steven Shapin begins his bold, vibrant exploration of the origins of the modern scientific worldview, now updated with a new bibliographic essay featuring the latest scholarship.

"An excellent book."--Anthony Gottlieb, New York Times Book Review

"Timely and highly readable. . . . A book which every scientist curious about our predecessors should read."--Trevor Pinch, New Scientist

"Shapin's account is informed, nuanced, and articulated with clarity. . . . This is not to attack or devalue science but to reveal its richness as the human endeavor that it most surely is. . . . Shapin's book is an impressive achievement."--David C. Lindberg, Science

"It's hard to believe that there could be a more accessible, informed or concise account. . . . The Scientific Revolution should be a set text in all the disciplines. And in all the indisciplines, too."--Adam Phillips, London Review of Books
