Revolutions in Science (1500 - 1700)
Science Highlights: A Gareth Stevens Timeline Series
This book covers two centuries when amateur scientists--natural philosophers--began to use close observation and orderly experimentation to understand processes that had previously been explained by religion or superstition. By 1700, a new faith had emerged: a trust in the potential of human reason. This thrilling narrative is supported by photographs and illustrations, timelines and sidebars, and a host of other features that make exploration of this era accessible, entertaining, and unforgettable.
