Books By Author Stephen Gaukroger

Natural and the Human by Stephen Gaukroger Natural and the Human, Hardback (January 2016)

Stephen Gaukroger presents an original account of the development of science and our understanding of ourselves during a period which saw a fundamental shift in how the role of science was seen. At the core of the shift lies the aim of understanding human behaviour and motivations in empirical rather than theological and metaphysical terms.

Collapse of Mechanism and the Rise of Sensibility by Stephen Gaukroger Collapse of Mechanism and the Rise of Sensibility, Paperback (November 2012)

How did we come to have a scientific culture - one in which cognitive values are shaped around scientific ones? Stephen Gaukroger presents a rich and fascinating investigation of the development of intellectual culture in early modern Europe, a period in which understandings of the natural realm began to fragment.

Objectivity: A Very Short Introduction by Stephen Gaukroger Objectivity: A Very Short Introduction, Paperback (May 2012)

Objectivity is both an essential and elusive philosophical concept. This Very Short Introduction explores the theoretical and practical problems raised by objectivity, and also deals with the way in which particular understandings of objectivity impinge on social research, science, and art.

Philosopher in Early Modern Europe by Stephen Gaukroger Philosopher in Early Modern Europe, Paperback (December 2009)

This collection of essays provides access to key early modern disputes over what it meant to be a philosopher.
