Editorial Reviews

Contains papers from a two-week postgraduate seminar held in September 1992, in which contributors seek to go beyond limits of concepts, ages, and schools to examine the full variety of Renaissance methodological discussion. Subjects include method in the Aristotelian tradition, Alonso De La Veracruz as an Aristotelian philosopher, Galileo's regressive methodology, Kepler's epistemology, and Latin Aristotelianism and the Calvinist theory of scientific method. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
