Synopsis: The Scientific Revolution is one of the defining events in modern history - perhaps more than any other, the series of events and discoveries which have shaped the modern world. How did Europe, and then the rest of the world, separate empirical knowledge from supposition and superstition, and what extraordinary transformations did this bring about? This landmark book is a new account of the Scientific Revolution which will replace all other existing accounts, by the breadth of its thinking, the colour of its portraiture, and the originality of its vision.
