We live in a world of science. Science has intellectual authority and provides wonder in the vistas of the universe. It employs millions of people, and lies at the core of education throughout much of the world. Science provides a universal language enabling people to communicate across cultures, religions and political systems. In The Scientific Revolution in Global Perspective, William Burns places the major currents of the Scientific Revolution within the larger world of European trade and expansion and the use of new knowledge. Based on cutting-edge scholarship, Burns fluidly integrates the history of the Scientific Revolution in a convincing and seamless fashion, providing the reader with a new appreciation for the origins of the global, technological world around them.
