Science and the Secrets of Nature - Paperback

ID: 1195969840

Princeton University Press. PAPERBACK. 0691026025 1996 first paperback edition, Princeton University Press (Princeton, New Jersey), 6 1/8 x 9 1/4 inches tall trade paperback, xv, [2], 490 pp. Very slight rubbing and edgewear to covers. Otherwise, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked. ~SP06~ [2.0P] By explaining how to sire multicolored horses, produce nuts without shells, and create an egg the size of a human head, Giambattista Della Porta's Natural Magic (1559) conveys a fascination with tricks and illusions that makes it a work difficult for historians of science to take seriously. Yet, according to William Eamon, it is in the 'how-to' books written by medieval alchemists, magicians, and artisans that modern science has its roots. These compilations of recipes on everything from parlor tricks through medical remedies to wool-dyeing fascinated medieval intellectuals because they promised access to esoteric 'secrets of nature.' In closely examining this rich but little-known source of literature, Eamon reveals that printing technology and popular culture had as great, if not stronger, an impact on early modern science as did the traditional academic disciplines. .
