H-GermanGracefully, and piece by piece, Jones presents the reader with the building blocks of Descartes, Pascal and Leibniz's natural philosophies, identifying their reference points, models and influences, the forms of argumentation they employed . . . and how they circulated (and attempted to popularize) their contributions to knowing, or what some might today call science. Linking these frameworks reveals distinct patters, which historians of all stripes will find quite instructive.
