Traces the scientific revolution and its effects on women, the environment and the meaning of science today. This journey through the scientific revolution shows how the mechanistic world view of modern science sanctioned the exploitation of nature, unrestrained commercial expansion and a new socioeconomic order that subordinated women. It combines the politics, literature, art, popular culture and philosophy of the period with developments in physics, mathematics and technology to show the driving forces in the rise of modern science.
