about this item

In 13 selected papers from a May 2013 international conference in Aberdeen, Scotland, historians examine the life, work, and influence of Scottish scholar Liddel, especially his connections with northern Germany, where he taught for some time. Among the topics are the European career of a Scottish mathematician and physician, his 1607 Ars Medica: the effective method as foundation of medical knowledge and of ethics, home-styling matters: symbolic dimensions of the professorial household at Liddel's helmstadt, the geo-heliocentric controversy and his letter to Brahe from 1600, reconstructing his library at Aberdeen, and his published and unpublished works.
