The Idea of the Sciences is a book whose title and introduction promise a discipline enriching 'reinterpretation.' . . . The book will . . . be of interest to historians and philosophers of science, historians of Enlightenment thought, and those interested in the old regime. Its main achievement is its claim that Neostoic philosophy was at the root of a new and politically important moral idea or way of thinking that was forged and explored by early Enlightenment savants. Among them was the enterprising Samuel Sorbiere, whose aspirations to secure resources to fund scientific investigation place him in good company in 2014.--H-France Review
