about this item

Using the life and work of Danish scientist and theologian Nicolas Steno (1638-86) as a lens, scholars of philosophy and early modern culture explore relations between philosophy, theology, and the emerging sciences--particularly medicine and geology--in the early modern Republic of Letters. They cover from natural philosophy to theology, anatomy, and metaphysics: Steno and Cartesianism, the natural history of the Earth, and Steno at the Medici court. Among their topics are Jesuits, women, money, or natural theology: Steno's conversion to Catholicism in 1667; human brain and human mind: the Disourse on the Anatomy of the Brain and its philosophical reception, his myology: the right theory at the wrong time, thinking from traces: his palaeontology and the method of science, and some observations on Steno as a critical reader at the crossroads of natural science and theology: André Martin and Giordano Bruno.
