Editorial Reviews

Review

"For students and anyone interested in the history of science this is an excellent account of the development of science as part of - and within the context of - the Enlightenment." William S. Gorman, Science Books & Films

"The first book-length account of eighteenth century science since Abraham Wolf's 1939 edition of History of Science, Technology, and Philosophy in the Eighteenth Century, this is a valuable update of both the history of science and the Enlightenment." William S. Gorman, Science Books & Films

Book Description

A general history of 18th century science covering both the physical and life sciences. 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.

Hankins was my sr. thesis advisor at UW in the early 80s (pre-publication of this book). The scope of his learning is astonishing and his handling of the 18th c philosophes, technology and religion was great. I highly recommend this book.
