This volume, the second of four, includes parts four and five of the eight parts in the series. Part Four deals with what is called the Scientific Revolution from 1440-1690. This "revolution" is divided into three phases: Phase 1 (1440-1540) includes the Renaissance and the Reformation, during which the world-picture adopted from classical times was challenged, primarily by Copernicus; Phase 2 (1540-1650) saw the challenge completed with the establishment of new experimental methods; and Phase 3 (1650-1690) marked the triumph of the new science, its spread to new fields, the organization of science societies, and a new mathematical-mechanical philosophy. Part Four deals with the Industrial Revolution (1690-1900) and the growth and inner transformation of the economic system of capitalism. In science the developments of the electromagnetic, atomic, and evolutionary theories are seen as culminations of the period, with the steam-engine and growth of the use of iron and steel as the technological breakthroughs.

The extension of man : a history of physics before the quantum by J. D Bernal( Book )

31 editions published between 1970 and 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The late J.D. Bernal's lectures given to first-year students in physics at Birkbeck College, University of London, are presented here in their entirety, tracing the history of physics up to the end of the classical era at the end of 19th century, just before the discoveries of the subatom and relatively were made. In view of the prestige and profundity of the newer discoveries, Bernal felt that the classical era was being largely forgotten. In this book, he attributes a greater relevance to the work of men from the distant past than is usually given. For instance, the idea of atom not only retains the language of the Greek, Democritus, who first postulated it, but there is also an absolutely unbroken connection between the atom of the Greek and that of the modern physicist. Bernal felt that the historical method would be a suitable introduction to the fundamental concepts of physics, and it is hoped that the readers of the book will be able to see something of the interplay between the theoretical and practical aspects of the subject
