The New Science and Jesuit Science
Seventeenth Century Perspectives
Edited by Mordechai Feingold
New Science and Jesuit Science by Mordechai Feingold
Book DescriptionThis volume makes an important contribution toward a nuanced appreciation of the Jesuits' interaction with "modernity", and a greater recognition of their contribution to the mathematization of natural philosophy and experimental science. The six essays provide a cross-section of the complex Jesuit encounter with the mathematical sciences during the 17th century.
