Promoting experimental learning : experiment and the Royal Society 1660-1727 by Marie Boas Hall( Book )

17 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In spite of all that has been written in the past decades about the first half-century of the Royal Society's existence, no one has so far examined just what took place at the Society's weekly meetings nor how far they fulfilled the expressed aim of promoting 'experimental learning'. Students of the early Royal Society have often taken its aim to have been fully expressed in the writings of such Fellows as Boyle, Hooke and Newton, aware that Hooke especially performed very many experiments at the meetings between 1662 and 1703, while he and others wrote about the necessity of doing so. This study attempts to analyse the content of the meetings in detail in order to discover how far and in what manner the aims of the Society were fulfilled in the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. This book for the first time explores the practices of the Society's Fellows, and shows how these altered between 1660 and 1727
Henry Oldenburg : shaping the Royal Society by Marie Boas Hall( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The career of Henry Oldenburg illuminates the development of the Royal Society during the late seventeenth century. Born in 1619 in Bremen, Germany, Oldenburg first came to England as a diplomat on a mission to see Oliver Cromwell. He remained in England and in 1662 became the Secretary of the Royal Society, and its best known member of the time. He founded and edited the Philosophical Transactions, the world's oldest scientific journal. Through his extensive correspondence, now published, he disseminated the Society's ideal s and methods at home and abroad. He fostered and encouraged the talents of many scientists including Newton, Flamsteed, Malpighi, and Leeuwenhoek with whom, as with many others, he developed real friendships." "His career sheds light on the intellectual world of his time, especially its scientific aspects; his private life expands on our knowledge of contemporary social mobility, urban society, and religious views."--Jacket
