A History of Science in Society is a concise overview that introduces complex ideas in a non-technical fashion. Andrew Ede and Lesley B. Cormack trace the history of science through its continually changing place in society and explore the link between the pursuit of knowledge and the desire to make that knowledge useful. Volume I begins with a small group of philosophers in ancient Greece and ends with the work of Sir Isaac Newton. In this edition, the authors examine the robust intellectual exchange between East and West and provide new discussions of two women in science: Maria Merian and Maria Winkelmann. The further readings section has been updated to reflect recent contributions to the field. Other new features include timelines at the end of each chapter, 30 upgraded illustrations, and a map of Renaissance Europe.
