Measures of Science - Theological and Technological Impulses in Early Modern Thought
Barry, James Jr
Drawing on past and current research in continental philosophy, 'Measures of Science: Theological and Technological Impulses in Early Modern Thought' examines the development of certain founding issues of early modern science. Focusing on three key seventeenth-century figures - Descartes, Bacon, and Newton, - and locating his argument explicitly within the approach of Alexandre Koyre, James Barry Jr. explores the philosophical, theological, and technological priorities that established the frame for the full emergence of the new science. In showing how the work of these and other seventeenth-century figures led to the appearance of a dominant new view of nature and perception, Barry's book makes an essential contribution to our understanding of the formative period of modern science.
