Birth of Modern Science by Paolo Rossi

Book Description

This history of the birth of modern science shatters the illusion that science is a drya and divorced from culture by exploring the powerful clashes between traditions and value systems that gave rise to it. The author shows how many of the characteristics that distinguish science today emerged in the midst of the wars and plagues of the seventeenth century and defines what was new about this form of knowledge.

Logic and the Art of Memory by Paolo Rossi Logic and the Art of Memory, Paperback (January 2006)

A translation of this classic account of the art of memory and the logic of linkage and combination, the two traditions deriving from the Classical world and the late medieval period, and becoming intertwined in the 16th Century. From this intertwining emerged a tradition, a grandiose project for an 'alphabet of the world' or 'Clavis Universalis'.
