About this title


These 15 studies in the early development of geology include papers on Nicholas Desmarest, natural law in 18th-century geology and Buffons <i>&Eacute;poques de la Nature</i> (1778).


'Clearly no review can do justice to the complex these outlined above. But I hope I have said enough to entice historians of geology to read any or all parts of this admirable collection.' ISIS '...un livre a lire absolument, pour qui desire connaitre le contexte intellectuel dans lequel la geologie commenca a emerger en France.' Geochronique 'Taylor's Variorum collection marks, in a sense, the culmination of a long and successful career in teaching and research. Yet this is his first book. This is perhaps surprising, and so too is the degree of specialisation evident in his publications. ... But out of Taylor's markedly specialised studies have emerged various important generalisations about the emergence of geology, and broad ideas about the methods and goals of geologists in the eighteenth century. ... All in all, we have in Professor Taylor's Variorum volume a valuable and coherent collection of papers, and a worthy testimony to his long years of meticulous and cautious study. ... The book is highly commended.' Metascience 'L'ouvrage, dans l'esprit de cette collection, rend ainsi accessible un bon nombre d'articles jusque-la disperses et constitue a la fois un eclairage synthetique sur la geologie du XVIIIe et une invitation a des lectures complementaires.' Revue d'Histoire des Sciences
