Críticas:

mighty tome...a superb piece of work, brimming with scholarly but ease-to-read gems. ( Graham Farmelo, THES)

The Oxford Companion to the History of Modern Science has great breadth, it contains numerous entries that are a pleasure to read, and its index makes it easy to use ( John North, Times Literary Supplement)

Review from other book by this author Heilbron combines history and science and presents a cross-cultural examination of topics in a lavishly illustrated book ( Review of 'Geometry Civilized', in Zentralblatt fur Mathematik)

This wonderful book is a combination of mathematics, its history, and the history of civilisation and culture (architecture, painting, measuring, astronomy, etc) . . . contains some fascinating historical description . . . A lot of effort is spent on increasing our understanding of geometry. the author carefully explains solutions of some geometrical methods and proofs. There are diagrams on nearly every page, illustrations from older books, photographs and eight colour plates. ( Review of 'Geometry Civilized', in EMS)

Descripción Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2003. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 254 x 180 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. From the biographies on Galileo and Dorothy Hodgkin to the discussions chronicling the change of science from simply a tool of learning to a major force in society, The Oxford Companion to the History of Modern Science is the most comprehensive one-volume resource on science from 1550 to the present. Along with chemistry, physics, and biology, the major scientific disciplines are represented in this alphabetically arranged work including astrology, ethnology, and zoology, among many others. General concepts such as gender and science and scientific development are explored along with major time periods that had a tremendous impact on the field including the Enlightenment and Globalization (post-World War II). The coverage is not limited to just one geographical area but is worldwide, tracing science from its traditional centres and explaining how non-western societies have modified and contributed to its global arena. Major divisions of thought including Aristotelianism and mechanical philosophy are also covered as well as an examination of science and its relationship to professional practice and the changing face of disciplines and sub-disciplines. Individual institutions such as CERN and the Third World Academy of Science are explored as well as the epistemology and methodology of scientific knowledge, theoretical constructs, information on apparatus and instruments, the social aspects and responsibilities of science, and the innumerable uses of the applied sciences. Over 90 biographies bring these fields to life with the stories behind the great achievements. Among the notable scientists are Linus Pauling, Margaret Mead, Niels Bohr, Albert Einstein, and Edwin Hubble. An excellent overview of the field of science and its development over the past few generations, The Oxford Companion to the History of Modern Science is an essential resource for students, historians, teachers, scientists, doctors, engineers, and anyone with an interest in the many and varied aspects of science.
