This course will examine some of the intellectual, social and psychological changes in society in the 16th and 17th centuries that have led historians to call this the period of the Scientific Revolution. Much of the time, class periods will be devoted to class discussion; other classes will feature lectures designed to help you place the readings in context. Most of our readings will be from classic works, translated from the original into English.
