About This Book

"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
