The Scientific Revolution

A Social and Cultural Assessment (1500–1800)
Friday, February 5, 2016

9:30 am to 12:30 pm

Led by Mike Lynn, Purdue University North Central
Newberry Teachers' Consortium

Was there a revolution in science in early modern Europe? If so, just what was revolutionized and by whom? In this seminar we will explore the nature of the “Scientific Revolution” in Europe during the period from 1500 to 1800. The focus will fall on where and how science was practiced as well as who the practitioners were. Looking at examples from natural philosophy and natural history we will examine such themes as the relationships between science and religion, gender, and the state as well as the commercialization and popularization of science.
