Distilling knowledge : alchemy, chemistry, and the scientific revolution by Bruce T Moran( )

19 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 1,787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reacting to the perception that the break, early on in the scientific revolution, between alchemy and chemistry was clean and abrupt, Moran literately and engagingly recaps what was actually a slow process. Far from being the superstitious amalgam it is now considered, alchemy was genuine science before and during the scientific revolution. The distinctive alchemical procedure--distillation--became the fundamental method of analytical chemistry, and the alchemical goal of transmuting "base metals" into gold and silver led to the understanding of compounds and elements. What alchemy very gradually but finally lost in giving way to chemistry was its spiritual or religious aspect, the linkages it discerned between purely physical and psychological properties. Drawing saliently from the most influential alchemical and scientific texts of the medieval to modern epoch (especially the turbulent and eventful seventeenth century), Moran fashions a model short history of science volume

Bridging traditions : alchemy, chemistry, and Paracelsian practices in the early modern era by Karen Hunger Parshall( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bridging Traditions explores the connections between apparently different zones of comprehension and experience magic and experiment, alchemy and mechanics, practical mathematics and geometrical mysticism, things earthy and heavenly, and especially science and medicine by focusing on points of intersection among alchemy, chemistry, and Paracelsian medical philosophy. In exploring the varieties of natural knowledge in the early modern era, the authors pay tribute to the work of Allen Debus, whose own endeavors cleared the way for scholars to examine subjects that were once snubbed as suitable only to the refuse heap of the history of science. --

Andreas Libavius and the transformation of alchemy : separating chemical cultures with polemical fire by Bruce T Moran( Book )

14 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What lots of people called chymia in the early seventeenth century was a subject that the physician, alchemist, and school teacher Andreas Libavius believed needed sorting out. He called it an art without an art. To establish what sort of thing chymia was would require rebuilding its definitions from the theoretical and practical ground up while cutting back the forest of obscure language and private meaning in which it existed. Libavius took on the job, and in thousands of pages of toughly worded criticism ranging over alchemical, moral, medical, philosophical, and religious topics wielded a polemical blade to huge effect

Annotation This book is Guaranteed: This Concept manual is designed to provide information to help readers study for and pass CompTIA?s Network+ certification exam. Every effort has been made to make this concept manual as complete and accurate as possible. Just reviewing the table of contents, you will see that through BFQ Press, I was given the freedom to build on what I have learned from running a Voc Tech school. For example, the chapter numbers are written in Base 2. This wasn?t done to annoy you. The goal is through reinforcement, learn binary math, since that is how much of computing works. In this release, I teamed up with another alpha geek, and all around?I want all the data? person, Helen O?Boyle. The end result is you will not find another Network+ book with more geekie details, if you need them. Yet, we don?t make you wade through material. Sections of material have been blocked out so if you don?t want/need to know the details of, for example, how we forced a telco to install a DSL line, great. Who should NOT buy this book! If you simply looking to make sure you know the material to pass N10-002 (CompTIA Network+) DON?T buy this work. You would be looking for the BFQ Press ExamWise book, ISBN 1-59095-263-4 While we have kept the tone as light as possible, a great deal of serious research has been done to demystify obscure details, such as ATM or PPPoE. If you are not already in networking, or want/need a certification/reference/killer idea book, try the InsideScoop to Network+ from BFQ Press. ISBN 1-59095-202-2. It has more data than ExamInsight and the most in-depth practice exam simulation/study guide you have ever seen. If you are in the game for in-depth understanding, without many hundreds of deeply researched question, this is this book for you. Helen and Tcat encourage questions from and support the readers of this work. To us, it is another form of Networking, and we look forward to hearing from you. You cannot go wrong! Its Guaranteed!
