'Modern science' is often cast as beginning with Galileo. But what about the men who came before him, whose ideas he built upon and recast?
Before Galileo looks at the contributions of Saint Bede, Oxford scholar Robert Grossteste, physician Hunayan ibn-Ishaq, astronomy professor Erasmus Reinhold, and others who laid the foundation for what we now know as 'science.' This engaging work is a perfect intersection between history and science, and provides historical context for later developments. High School-Adult. 348 pages, indexed, hardcover with dust jacket.
