The Light of nature : essays in the history and philosophy of science presented to A.C. Crombie by John David North( Book )

11 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of essays is meant as a tribute to Alistair Crombie by some of those who have studied with him. The occasion of its publication is his seven tieth birthday - 4 November 1985. Its contents are a reflection - or so it is hoped - of his own interests, and they indicate at the same time his influence on subjects he has pursued for some forty years. Born in Brisbane, Australia, Alistair Cameron Crombie took a first degree in zoology at the University of Melbourne in 1938, after which he moved to Je sus College, Cambridge. There he took a doctorate in the same subject (with a dissertation on population dynamics - foreshadowing a later interest in the history of Darwinism) in 1942. By this time he had taken up a research position with the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries in the Cambridge Zoological La boratory, a position he left in 1946, when he moved to a lectureship in the his tory and philosophy of science at University College, London. H.G. Andrewa ka and L.C. Birch, in a survey of the history of insect ecology (R.F. Smith, et al., History of Entomology, 1973), recognise the importance of the works of Crombie (with which they couple the earlier work of Gause) as the principal sti mulus for the great interest taken in interspecific competition in the mid 194Os
Science, optics, and music in medieval and early modern thought by A. C Crombie( Book )

11 editions published between 1987 and 1990 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A.C. Crombie was one of the best known writers on the history of Science. Science, Optics and Music in Medieval and Early Modern Thought brings together a coherent body of essays that complement his books and are of independent value. A.C. Crombie traces general themes in the development of Science: the Aristotelian inheritance and the importance of the search for logical explanation in the middle ages; the ambitions and limitations of experiment and quantification; changing attitudes to scientific progress; the relations between Science and the Arts, and between Mathematics, Music and Medical Science; and the study of the senses. In particular he shows how the mechanistic hypothesis stimulated the experimental and philosophical study of vision"--Bloomsbury Publishing

Science, art, and nature in medieval and modern thought by A. C Crombie( Book )

11 editions published between 1990 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A.C. Crombie sees the history of Western Science as the history of a vision and an argument, initiated by the ancient Greeks in their search for principles at once of nature and of argument itself. This scientific vision explored and controlled by argument, and the diversification of both vision and argument by scientific experience and by interaction with the wider contexts of intellectual culture, constitute the long history of European scientific thought. Underlying that development have been specific commitments to conceptions of nature and of Science and its intellectual and moral assumptions, accompanied by a recurrent critique their diversification has generated a series of different styles of scientific thinking and of making theoretical and practical decisions which he describes and analyses"--Publisher description
