Descripción

First Edition in English of Études galiléennes (1939). [xi], 278 pp; illus. Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket. 'Fundamental to the study of Galileo's scientific work' (Stillman Drake in D.S.B. V: 248). 'It was in the United States in the immediate post-war years that Études galiléennes, not much noticed amid the distraction of scholarship by war, found its widest and most enthusiastic public, a case of the right book becoming known at the right time. A new generation of historians of science . . . came upon Études galiléennes as upon a revelation of what exciting intellectual interest their newly found subject might hold, a book which was no arid tally of discoveries and obsolete technicalities, nor a sentimental glorification of the wonders of the scientific spirit, nor yet (despite the author's Platonism) a stalking horse for some philosophical system, whether referring to science like the positivist outlook or to history like the Marxist. Instead, they found a patient, analytical, and still a tremendously exciting history of the battle of ideas waged by the great protagonists, Galileo and Descartes, in their struggle to win through to the most fundamental concepts of classical physics. . . . He is the master of us all' (Charles C. Gillispie, in D.S.B. VII: 486). N° de ref. de la librería 03685
