Practical matter : Newton's science in the service of industry and empire, 1687-1851 by Margaret C Jacob( )

21 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From 1687 when Newton published his Principia to the Crystal Palace Exhibition of 1851, science gradually became central to Western thought and economic development. The book aims at a general audience and examines how, despite powerful opposition on the Continent, a Newtonian understanding gained acceptance and practical application. By the mid-eighteenth century the new science had achieved ascendancy, and the race was on to apply Newtonian mechanics to industry and manufacturing. The authors end the story with the temple to scientific and technological progress that was the Crystal Palace exhibition. Choosing their examples carefully, Jacob and Stewart show that there was nothing preordained or inevitable about the centrality awarded to science."--Page 4 of cover

The rise of public science : rhetoric, technology, and natural philosophy in Newtonian Britain, 1660-1750 by Larry Stewart( Book )

12 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What became of the rhetorical promises of the early Royal Society? How was it that the experimental philosophy of the early Newtonians was regarded by some as destructive of British society and by others as its savior? Why did numerous entrepreneurs in the eighteenth century come to see Newton's disciples as the means to ensure success in the wild world of technical adventures? In the convergence of social and intellectual issues, these are some of the questions The Rise of Public Science seeks to answer by exploring the social attitudes toward the claims and activities of the natural philosophers in Britain from the Restoration to the first stage of industrialization. Situating science amidst the social and intellectual transformation of the times, Stewart considers the religious conflicts, political changes, and technological demands that influenced the development of natural philosophy by the early eighteenth century. Through Newton's disciples, he explores the reasons for the popularity of science and its controversial links with a variety of technical and entrepreneurial ventures on the verge of the Industrial Revolution

The uses of humans in experiment : perspectives from the 17th to the 20th century by Erika Dyck( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Scientific experimentation with humans has a long history. Combining elements of history of science with history of medicine, The Uses of Humans in Experiment illustrates how humans have grappled with issues of consent, and how scientists have balanced experience with empiricism to achieve insights for scientific as well as clinical progress. The modern incarnation of ethics has often been considered a product of the second half of the twentieth century, as enshrined in international laws and codes, but these authors remind us that this territory has long been debated, considered, and revisited as a fundamental part of the scientific enterprise that privileges humans as ideal subjects for advancing research"--
The romance of science : essays in honour of Trevor H. Levere.( )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Romance of Science pays tribute to the wide-ranging and highly influential work of Trevor Levere, historian of science and author of Poetry Realised in Nature, Transforming Matter, Science and the Canadian Arctic, Affinity and Matter and other significant inquiries in the history of modern science. Expanding on Levere's many themes and interests, The Romance of Science assembles historians of science -- all influenced by Levere's work -- to explore such matters as the place and space of instruments in science, the role and meaning of science museums, poetry in nature, chemical warfare and warfare in nature, science in Canada and the Arctic, Romanticism, aesthetics and morals in natural philosophy, and the "dismal science" of economics. The Romance of Science explores the interactions between science's romantic, material, institutional and economic engagements with Nature."-- $c Provided by publisher
The enlightenment of Thomas Beddoes : science, medicine and reform by Trevor Harvey Levere( )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Beddoes (1760-1808) lived in "decidedly interesting times" in which established orders in politics and science were challenged by revolutionary new ideas. Enthusiastically participating in the heady atmosphere of Enlightenment debate, Beddoes' career suffered from his radical views on politics and science. Denied a professorship at Oxford, he set up a medical practice in Bristol in 1793. Six years later - with support from a range of leading industrialists and scientists including the Wedgwoods, Erasmus Darwin, James Watt, James Keir and others associated with the Lunar Society - he established a Pneumatic Institution for investigating the therapeutic effects of breathing different kinds of "air" on a wide spectrum of diseases. The treatment of the poor, gratis, was an important part of the Pneumatic Institution and Beddoes, who had long concerned himself with their moral and material well-being, published numerous pamphlets and small books about their education, wretched material circumstances, proper nutrition, and the importance of affordable medical facilities. Beddoes' democratic political concerns reinforced his belief that chemistry and medicine should co-operate to ameliorate the conditions of the poor
