Herein, Dwight Atkinson describes the written language and rhetoric of the Royal Society of London, based on his analysis of its affiliated journal, The Philosophical Transactions, starting with the 17th-century advent of modern empirical science and continuing through to the present day. Atkinson adopts two independent approaches to the analysis of written discourse from the fields of linguistics and rhetoric/composition, and then integrates and interprets his findings in light of the history of the Royal Society and British science."@en ;
