Abstract [en]

He has been a force in the development of the history of science for decades, focusing on the eighteenth-century Enlightenment (when he admits it existed) and is the author of a seminal two-volume work in the field and another on, of all things, Peking Man. Frangsmyr's range of interests and his astonishing level of expertise in all are reflected in these essays, with topics ranging from concepts of evolution and progress in Lucretius to da Vinci's concept of nature, Torricelli's improvements of Galileo, Solomon's houses and Bianchi's academic places, Linnaeus and Darwin, the use and abuse of von Humboldt, nationalism and horticulture in the US, a divided Jules Verne, a consolidated history of reason, experiments and physics, conflicting cosmologies, and science in an age of policy. Science History Publications USA is a division of Watson Publishing International.
