Gribbin, John

SUMMARY

"Seventeenth-century England was ravaged by civil war, plague and fire; a world ruled by superstition and ignorance. But then a series of meetings of 'natural philosophers' in Oxford and London saw the beginning of a new method of thinking based on proof and experiment. And at the heart of this Renaissance were the founding fathers of modern western science: The Royal Society." "John Gribbin gives us a colorful account of this unparalleled time of discovery, explores the birth of the Society, and brings its prime movers to life, including: William Gilbert, Francis Bacon, William Harvey, Christopher Wren, Robert Mory, Robert Hooke, and his ambitious rival Isaac Newton." "This book shows how the triumph of the revolution that changed our world - and still continues 350 years on - was ultimately not the work of one isolated genius, but of a Fellowship."--BOOK JACKET.Gribbin, John is the author of 'Fellowship Gilbert, Bacon, Harvey, Wren, Newton, and the Story of a Scientific Revolution', published 2007 under ISBN 9781585678310 and ISBN 1585678317.
