The Enlightenment and the Chemical Revolution

Science and the Enlightenment is a general history of eighteenth-century science covering both the physical and life sciences. It places the scientific developments of the century in the cultural context of the Enlightenment and reveals the extent to which scientific ideas permeated the thought of the age.

The book takes advantage of topical scholarship, which is rapidly changing our understanding of science during the eighteenth century. In particular it describes how science was organized into fields that were quite different from those we know today. Professor Hankins's work is a much needed addition to the literature on eighteenth-century science. His study is not technical, it will be of interest to all students of the Enlightenment and the history of science, as well as to the general reader with some background in science.

The Chemical Revolution is becoming a focus of renewed interest among historians and philosophers of science, some of whom wish to relate it to the wider sociocultural context of eighteenth-century life. This context included the cultural movement known as the Enlightenment, at the core of which was a set of metaphysical presuppositions concerning the nature of the knowing mind and its relation to the object of inquiry. The Enlightenment notion of the self-defining subject established a unitary framework of regulative principles, dealing with the relation between science and metaphysics, the method of analysis, and the relation between thought and language, which were variously interpreted in the opposing views that Lavoisier and Priestley developed about the ontology of chemistry, the nature of experimentation, the reform of the chemical nomenclature, and the institutional organization of science. The ensuing dialectic occurred within an historiographical framework in which both sides viewed the chemical upheavals of the eighteenth-century in terms of the Enlightenment notion of the dawning of a new age, radically different from anything that had gone before. The interpretation of the Chemical Revolution developed here calls for a more balanced view of the moments of continuity and discontinuity in scientific change; it also suggests that an adequate conception of scientific change can be formulated only within a framework provided by a robust contextual model of science, in which the distinction between the constitutive aspects of science and the contextual factors is rejected in favour of a relational view of each as constitutive of the other.

Science and the Enlightenment is an intellectual and scientific history of the great flowering of scientific and philosophic thought during the 18th century in Europe, the period known as the Enlightenment. The Enlightenment was both an important and radical break with tradition and the foundation of modern science and thought. This book documents that development. At the outset of the Enlightenment, thinkers were beginning to rebel and move beyond the stifling dogma of Aristotelian thought that had been enforced by the Catholic church since the 11th century. It is no surprise that Enlightenment thought grew out of the work of two Englishmen, who lived in a land that had divorced itself from the Catholic Church. It was Newton and Bacon who developed many of the ideas that led to the Enlightenment both advocating the adoption of the inductive method of observation and theorizing and making a radical break from any reliance on religious revelation or on Catholic philosophy.

Сьюзан шла следом за ним, размышляя, по-прежнему ли Хейл прячется в Третьем узле. Свет от монитора Стратмора отбрасывал на них жутковатую тень. Сьюзан старалась держаться поближе к шефу на небольшой платформе с металлическими поручнями. По мере того как они удалялись от двери, свет становился все более тусклым, и вскоре они оказались в полной темноте.
