Science in the Enlightenment : an encyclopedia

"The first introductory reference work focusing exclusively on the scientific output of the era, Science in the Enlightenment spans the full spectrum of scientific disciplines, some of which built on the achievements of the previous era (astronomy, mathematics), some of which underwent revolutionary change (chemistry; zoology and botany; geology; and medicine). It is the ideal introduction to both the vast array of innovation and controversy the universe of eighteenth-century science offered its eager public and the legacy that science left for the future."
