The construction of modern science : mechanisms and mechanics by Richard S Westfall( Book )

"This is a new synthesis of science in the 17th century. It follows developments within the individual sciences in terms of a new conception of nature and a new conception of the scientific enterprise. It examines a line of expanding investigation beginning with the revolution in scientific thought that occurred with Kepler and Galileo at the beginning of the 17th century, and concluding with Newton at the century's end. Instead of cataloguing the discoveries and listing them chronologically, the author presents a new pattern of organization for students that is designed to integrate separate facts into a coherent and comprehensible whole."
