Examining the scientific ideas developed by the early Greek philosophers, the developments of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and the momentous discoveries of the Scientific Revolution in the 17th century, this volume looks at the early years of scientific thought and discovery. Covering figures as well known as Aristotle and Newton, The Birth of Science: Ancient Times to 1699 also looks beyond the specific contributions of key individuals and offers a more inclusive, world view of the early days of science.
