An essential book for anyone interested in Early Modern thought, literature or history. Btw. Did you know that Newton thought that the second coming of Jesus takes place either in the 20th or the 21st century? ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0631227113, Paperback)

This history of the birth of modern science shatters the illusion that science is 'dry' and divorced from culture by exploring the powerful clashes between traditions and value systems that gave rise to it. The author shows how many of the characteristics that distinguish science today emerged in the midst of the wars and plagues of the seventeenth century and defines what was new about this form of knowledge.
