    Bring Out Your Dead: The Past As Revelation by GRAFTON, ANTHONY

    Harvard University Press,Cambridge: 2001. Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. The work of the Renaissance humanists comes to life in Anthony Grafton's exploration of the primary sources and modern scholarship, classical and modern elements in the world of European letters from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century. Tracing the ties that bound the world of humanistic learning in early modern Europe to other social and cultural spheres, Grafton defines the current state of the art of scholarship on early modern European cultural and intellectual history while simultaneously demonstrating how entertaining, enlightening, and relevant that history can be. Covering a dazzling variety of topics and authors as different as Alberti and Descartes, Grafton maps the grand and meticulous efforts of the past to connect the realm of nature with that of books, the realm of everyday experience with that of passionate reading in massive tomes, and the realm of codes of etiquette and institutions with that of extravagant and joyous erudition--efforts that this book itself brilliantly carries on. Includes an Index. ISBN: 067400468X.

    The Newtonian Revolution: With Illustrations of the Transformation of Scientific Ideas by Cohen, I. Bernard

    New York, NY, U.S.A.: Cambridge University Press, 1983. This volume presents the author's original interpretation of the revolution that marked the beginnings of modern science; it shows that the essence of the Newtonian revolution is the relation between abstract mathematical constructs and the physical systems we observe in the world by means of experiment and observation; building on the analysis of Newton's methodology, it explores the structure of scientific change as a series of transformations (blue, orange & black cover with very slight edgewear; otherwise a bright, clean, unmarked copy). Trade Paperback. Very Good.
