Description
Following the intellectual revolution of the Renaissance, scientists and philosophers increasingly relied upon mathematics and observation as a means of understanding our world. With color illustrations on every page, this engrossing, panoramic look at that heady time profiles some of the great minds (Galileo Galilei, Isaac Newton, Blaise Pascal, René Descartes, Edmund Halley); inventions (the diving bell, the microscope, central heating, the piano); and concepts (the free press, paper money, insurance, and statistics). Arranged chronologically, these succinct texts provide a whirlwind tour of one of the most dynamic eras in history.
