About this title:
Losing Touch with Nature offers a lucid, well-argued account of the prehistory of the scientific revolution in England. Crane?s timely study provides a useful model for bridging the gap between literary and scientific production during a period in English thought that has been relatively neglected by historians of science and literary critics alike. Rich in its interdisciplinarity and refreshing in its convincing refutation of many preconceptions about the state of scientific thought in the sixteenth century, this book will appeal to a wide audience.(Shankar Raman, Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
