Howard Aiken : portrait of a computer pioneer by I. Bernard Cohen( )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 2,496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Howard Hathaway Aiken (1900-1973) was a major figure of the early digital era. He is best known for his first machine, the IBM Automatic Sequence Controlled Calculator or Harvard Mark I, conceived in 1937 and put into operation in 1944. But he also made significant contributions to the development of applications for the new machines and to the creation of a university curriculum for computer science." "This biography of Aiken, by a major historian of science who was also a colleague of Aiken's at Harvard, offers a clear and often entertaining introduction to Aiken and his times."--Jacket
The Cambridge companion to Newton by Rob Iliffe( )

24 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 2,307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher Description (unedited publisher data) Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727) was one of the greatest scientists of all time, a thinker of extraordinary range and creativity who has left enduring legacies in mathematics and the natural sciences. In this volume a team of distinguished contributors examine all the main aspects of Newton's thought, including not only his approach to space, time, mechanics, and universal gravity in his Principia, his research in optics, and his contributions to mathematics, but also his more clandestine investigations into alchemy, theology, and prophecy, which have sometimes been overshadowed by his mathematical and scientific interests.

Revolution in science by I. Bernard Cohen( Book )

36 editions published between 1985 and 1996 in 4 languages and held by 1,997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cohen traces the nuances that differentiate both scientific revolutions and human perceptions of them, weaving threads of details from physics, mathematics, behaviorism, Freud, atomic physics and molecular biology, into the larger fabric of intellectual history. Examining the transformations in the way scientists, historians, and philosophers have conceived of scientific change from the 17th century to the present, he analyzes idea of "revolution" and explores how the term "revolution" came to stand for radical change in political and socioeconomic affairs, and science. With case histories from the revolutions associated with the names of Kepler, Copernicus, Galileo, Darwin, Newton, and Einstein, as well as the Industrial and political revolutions, he details the nature of all scientific revolutions, the stages by which they occur, their time scale, and the creative factors in producing a revolutionary new idea.

Isaac Newton's natural philosophy by Jed Z Buchwald( )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 1,771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Newton studies have undergone radical changes in the last half-century as more of his work has been uncovered and more details of his life and intellectual context have come to light. This volume singles out two strands in recent Newton studies: the intellectual background to Newton's scientific thought and both specific and general aspects of his technical science. The essays make new claims concerning Newton's mathematical methods, experimental investigations, and motivations, as well as the effect that his long presence had on science in England.The book is divided into two parts. The essays in part I shed new light on Newton's motivations and the sources of his method. The essays in part II explore Newton's mathematical philosophy and his development of rational mechanics and celestial dynamics. An appendix includes the last paper by Newton biographer Richard W. Westfall, examining some of the ways that mathematics came to be used in the age of Newton in pursuits and domains other than theoretical or rational mechanics

The Newtonian revolution : with illustrations of the transformation of scientific ideas by I. Bernard Cohen( Book )

47 editions published between 1980 and 2002 in English and Chinese and held by 1,105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents Professor Cohen's original interpretation of the revolution that marked the beginnings of modern science and set Newtonian science as the model for the highest level of achievement in other branches of science. It shows that Newton developed a special kind of relation between abstract mathematical constructs and the physical systems that we observe in the world around us by means of experiment and critical observation. The heart of the radical Newtonian style is the construction on the mind of a mathematical system that has some features in common with the physical world; this system s then modified when the deductions and conclusions drawn from it are tested against the physical universe. Using this system Newton was able to make his revolutionary innovations in celestial mechanics and, ultimately, create a new physics of central forces and the law of universal gravitation. Building on his analysis of Newton's methodology, Professor Cohen explores the fine structure of revolutionary change and scientific creativity in general. This is done by developing the concept of scientific change as a series of transformations of ecxisting ideas. It is shown that such transformation is characteristic of many aspects of the sciences and that the concept of scientific change by transformation suggests a new way of examining the very nature of scientific creativity
