Excerpt from Studies in the History of Mediaeval ScienceThe history of European science in the Middle Ages is twofold. On the one hand it is concerned with the recovery and assimila tionof the science of antiquity, little known at first and only gradually brought into the West, to some extent as enlarged by the Arabs, in the course of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries; While on the other hand, it has to take account of the advance of knowledge, by the processes of observation and experiment in western Europe. The first phase deals primarily With translation from the Arabic and the Greek, in Spain, Sicily, North Africa, and the East, as a preliminary to the full assimilation of these successive increments of ancient learning and the Arabic addi tions thereto. The second more obscure, has to trace the exten sion of knowledge by such means as the observation of plants and animals, especially dogs, hawks, and horses, the actual treatment of disease, geographical exploration, and the growth of the ex perimental habit. On both these sides a consecutive and com prehensive history still remains to be written, While at many points monographic investigation is entirely lacking.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
