Pressestimmen

"...Hunter deserves thanks for a volume that sets the stage for future research that will honor both intellectual traditions and context." Times Literaru Supplement "...these essays open up new perspectives on Boyle...they place him more closely in the context of his own day: a most important time, in which the first lasting scientific institutions were formed and the 'new philosophy' gained wide acceptance...Anybody interested in the 'Scientific Revolution' or in how great scientists' minds work will find Hunter's book fascinating. The contributors have made their pieces accessible and the essays go well together." David Knight, Nature "...Hunter deserves thanks for a volume that sets the stage for future research that will honor both intellectual traditions and context. The papers range widely, as do the writings they examine, and will be of most interest to specialists. For them and for all 'beginners' alike, Hunter's chapter and the 16-page bibliography of works since 1940 (updating Fulton's classic bibliography) are invaluable." E.R. Webster, Choice "The essays collected by Michael Hunter represent the work of a group of Boyle scholars who have been active in the last few years in mining Boyle's papers--published and unpublished--for new information about a major thinker who has been relatively overlooked by historians. Much of this work is both welcome and rewarding and benefits from the fact that these scholars feed off of one another's discoveries." James R. Jacob, Albion "...capable of stimulating the "newer, more nuanced view" of Boyle promised in Hunter's introduction Seventeenth-Century News
