Natural theology or, evidence of the existence and attributes of the deity, collected from the appearances of nature by William Paley ( )
16 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
William Paley set out to prove the existence of God from the evidence of the beauty and order of the natural world. Famously beginning by comparing the world to a watch, whose design is self-evident, he goes on to provide examples from biology, anatomy, and astronomy in order to demonstrate the intricacy and ingenuity of design that could only come from a wise and benevolent deity. Paley's legalistic approach and skilful use of metaphor and analogy were hugely successful and equally controversial. Charles Darwin, whose investigations led to very different conclusions in The Origin of Species, was greatly influenced by the book's cumulative structure and accessible style

Of all the inventions of the nineteenth century, the scientist is one of the most striking. In revolutionary France the science student, taught by men active in research, was born; and a generation later, the graduate student doing a PhD emerged in Germany. In 1833 the word 'scientist' was coined; forty years later science (increasingly specialised) was a becoming a profession. Men of science rivalled clerics and critics as sages; they were honoured as national treasures, and buried in state funerals. Their new ideas invigorated the life of the mind. Peripatetic congresses, great exhibitions

Public understanding of science : a history of communicating scientific ideas by David M Knight ( Book )

"Between the French Revolution in 1789 and the 'chemists' war' (1914-18), science became culturally and economically vital; seemingly pervasive but also difficult. This book explores how science was disseminated during this period, moving from a time in the late eighteenth century when science was not widely regarded as a necessary tool for investigating the world to the start of the twentieth century, when it was crucial."
