From the PublisherFrom the reviews:
"...I find Meanest Foundations and Nobler Superstructures to be an excellent resource in the history of science and particularly valuable for its recognition of Hooke's scientific style."
(Physics Today, September 2003)
"This book is very densely packed with theses, issues, new ideas, and historical and philosophical comparisons – all very well researched and thoroughly documented. … a well-written and in particular very well researched study in the history and philosophy of science of one of the most important and interesting periods in the history of Western science and in intellectual history as a whole. Students of the period and of history and philosophy of science in general will find it an important addition to the discipline’s literature." (Zvi Solow, The Jerusalem Philosophical Quarterly, Vol. 54, July, 2005)
