Reforming philosophy : a Victorian debate on science and society by Laura J Snyder( )

17 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 1,661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Both William Whewell and John Stuart Mill believed that by reforming philosophy - including the philosophy of science - they could effect social and political change. But their divergent visions of this societal transformation led to a sustained and spirited controversy that covered morality, politics, science, and economics. Situating their debate within the larger context of Victorian society and its concerns, Reforming Philosophy shows how two very different men captured the intellectual spirit of the day and engaged the attention of other scientists and philosophers, including the young Charles Darwin."

Eye of the beholder : Johannes Vermeer, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, and the reinvention of seeing by Laura J Snyder( Book )

24 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The remarkable story of how an artist and a scientist in seventeenth-century Holland transformed the way we see the world. On a summer day in 1674, in the small Dutch city of Delft, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek--a cloth salesman, local bureaucrat, and self-taught natural philosopher--gazed through a tiny lens set into a brass holder and discovered a never-before imagined world of microscopic life. At the same time, in a nearby attic, the painter Johannes Vermeer was using another optical device, a camera obscura, to experiment with light and create the most luminous pictures ever beheld. "See for yourself!" was the clarion call of the 1600s. Scientists peered at nature through microscopes and telescopes, making the discoveries in astronomy, physics, chemistry, and anatomy that ignited the Scientific Revolution. Artists investigated nature with lenses, mirrors, and camera obscuras, creating extraordinarily detailed paintings of flowers and insects, and scenes filled with realistic effects of light, shadow, and color. By extending the reach of sight the new optical instruments prompted the realization that there is more than meets the eye. But they also raised questions about how we see and what it means to see. In answering these questions, scientists and artists in Delft changed how we perceive the world."--The publisher's description

Eye of the beholder : Johannes Vermeer, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, and the reinvention of seeing by Laura J Snyder( )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'See for yourself!' was the clarion call of the 1600s. Natural philosophers threw off the yoke of ancient authority, peered at nature with microscopes and telescopes, and ignited the Scientific Revolution. Artists investigated nature with lenses and created paintings filled with realistic effects of light and shadow. The hub of this optical innovation was the small Dutch city of Delft. Here Johannes Vermeer's experiments with lenses and a camera obscura taught him how we see under different conditions of light and helped him create the most luminous works of art ever beheld. Meanwhile, his neighbor Antoni van Leeuwenhoek's work with microscopes revealed a previously unimagined realm of minuscule creatures. The result was a transformation in both art and science that revolutionized how we see the world today

El ojo del observador : Johannes Vermeer, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek y la reinvención de la mirada by Laura J Snyder( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in Spanish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En el verano de 1674, en la ciudad de Delft, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek descubrió, mirando a través de una minúscula lente, el mundo microscópico. Al mismo tiempo, en la buhardilla de una casa cercana, Johannes Vermeer empleaba otro instrumento óptico -una cámara oscura- para experimentar con la luz y crear así las pinturas más luminosas que el mundo ha contemplado. A partir d eentonces, los avances de la física, la astronomía, la química y la anatomía abrieron paso a la ciencia moderna, transformando nuestra visión del mundo y la manera de reflejarlo. Una extraordinaria revolución que Laura J. Snyder narra con exquisita sensibilidad: la búsqueda del conocimiento a través de la mirada y la vida de dos hombres que, probablemente, nunca llegaron a conocerse
