AUTHOR

Biagioli, Mario

SUMMARY

Informed by currents in sociology, cultural anthropology, and literary theory,Galileo, Courtieris neither a biography nor a conventional history of science. In the court of the Medicis and the Vatican, Galileo fashioned both his career and his science to the demands of patronage and its complex systems of wealth, power, and prestige. Biagioli argues that Galileo's courtly role was integral to his science--the questions he chose to examine, his methods, even his conclusions.Galileo, Courtieris a fascinating cultural and social history of science highlighting the workings of power, patronage, and credibility in the development of science.Biagioli, Mario is the author of 'Galileo, Courtier The Practice of Science in the Culture of Absolutism', published 1994 under ISBN 9780226045603 and ISBN 0226045609.
