An Essay on Universities and the Scientific Revolution
Reprint. Hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13cm, 118pp.
From the dustwrapper, "In this excellent contribution to scientific and educational scholarship, the author gives a fascinating account of the impact of the scientific revolution on the universities and their gradual adaptation to the new learning. He describes the development of scientific and technological teaching up to the present day, and makes a powerful case for the inclusion of technology in a liberal education, making suggestions towards a syllabus for such an education". The author was a noted naturalist and botanist, and was President and Vice-Chancellor of Queen's University of Belfast.
The book is in very good condition, with a little foxing to the page edges. The dustwrapper has tanning to the spine, and a few areas of light spotting foxing and rubbing.
