Autonomous Nature: Problems of Prediction & Control from Ancient Times to the Scientific Revolution by Carolyn Merchant
English | 2015 | ISBN: 1138930997, 1138931004 | 210 pages | PDF + EPUB | 2,5 + 4 MB


Autonomous Nature investigates the history of nature as an active, often unruly force in tension with nature as a rational, logical order from ancient times to the Scientific Revolution of the seventeenth century. Along with subsequent advances in mechanics, hydrodynamics, thermodynamics, & electromagnetism, nature came to be perceived as an orderly, rational, physical world that could be engineered, controlled, & managed. Autonomous Nature focuses on the history of unpredictability, why it was a problem for the ancient world through the Scientific Revolution, & why it is a problem for today. The work is set in the context of vignettes about unpredictable events such as the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, the Bubonic Plague, the Lisbon Earthquake, & efforts to underst& & predict the weather & natural disasters. This book is an ideal text for courses on the environment, environmental history, history of science, or the philosophy of science.
