How Modern Science Came Into The World

How Modern Science Came Into The World




H. Floris Cohen

Floris Cohen vernieuwt in How Modern Science Came into the World het begrip 'de Wetenschappelijke Revolutie van de zeventiende eeuw' radicaal. Hij vertelt het verhaal op een manier die van de grond af opnieuw is doordacht. Een beschavingsbrede aanpak, consequent volgehouden vergelijkingen en een niet aflatende zoektocht naar onderliggende patronen

Order, materiality and urban space in the early modern kingd




Riitta Laitinen

People's corporality and immersion in the material environment they live in makes people inherently spatial beings. Similarly, sharing everyday life in a material environment makes a community a spatial thing. This book explores the townspeople of Turku, the second most important town in the seventeenth-century kingdom of Sweden, and their relationship to urban space. It gives a new kind of an account of civil and social order in an early modern town. The book is divided into two sections: the town and the dwelling, two central anchors of urban belonging and identity. Viewing the town and the dwelling as spatial entities makes it possible to examine the town and its community in a way that encompasses all of the town's people. This is important as everyone in the urban space played their part in the creation of civil and social order.

Premodern rulership and contemporary political power




Karolina Mroziewicz

Theologians, historians, and jurists interpreted the king and his kingdom as a corporal reality, the body politic. The idea of the monarch as the embodiment of the community emerged from medieval European culture and endured for centuries, leaving a legacy that continues to affect political discourse. Within this book, thirteen essays provide case studies from premodern and contemporary European cultures that demonstrate the process by which political corporations, 'bodies politic', were and continue to be constructed and challenged. Drawing upon the disciplines of history, archaeology, literary criticism, and art history, the contributors to this book survey a wide geographical and chronological spectrum to offer a panoramic view of such dynamic political entities. Taking inspiration from, while simultaneously reassessing, Ernst Kantorowicz's masterpiece, The King's Two Bodies, these contributors urge us to reflect on problems deriving from nationalist discourses, social inequalities, and rigid ideologies.

Re-forming texts, music, and church art in the Early Modern



Our historical understanding of the Reformation in northern Europe has tended to privilege the idea of disruption and innovation over continuity - yet even the most powerful reformation movements drew on and exchanged ideas with earlier cultural and religious practices. This volume attempts to right the balance, bringing together a roster of experts to trace the continuities between the medieval and early modern period in the Nordic realm, while enabling us to see the Reformation and its changes in a new light.

The political culture of the sister republics, 1794-1806

The political culture of the sister republics, 1794-1806



Experts on the French, Batavian, Helvetic, Cisalpine, and Neapolitan revolutions bridge the gap here between the so-called 'Sister' Republics. They explore political culture as a set of discourses or political practices. Parliamentary practices, the comparability of 'universal' political concepts, late-eighteenth century Republicanism, the relationship between press and politics, and the interaction between the Sister Republics and France are studied from a comparative, transnational perspective.

Tocqueville, Jansenism, and the Necessity of the Political i




David Selby

Before being declared heretical in 1713, Jansenism was a Catholic movement focused on such central issues as original sin and predestination. In this engaging book, David Selby explores how the Jansenist tradition shaped Alexis de Tocqueville’s life and works and argues that once that connection is understood, we can apply Tocqueville’s political thought in new and surprising ways. Moving from the historical sociology of Jansenism in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century France to contemporary debates over the human right to education, the role of religion in democracy, and the nature of political freedom, Selby brings Tocqueville out of the past and makes him relevant to the present, revealing that there is still much to learn from this great theorist of democracy.

The multilingualism of Constantijn Huygens (1596-1687)

Financing poor relief through charitable collections in Dutc




Daniëlle Teeuwen

In the Dutch Republic, charitable collections, which formed the financial backbone of many poor relief institutions, were regularly organised by both religious and secular authorities. This book examines both the policies of church boards and town councils in organising these charitable appeals, as well as the general population's giving behaviour. Using archival sources from the towns of Delft, Utrecht, Zwolle, and 's-Hertogenbosch, Daniëlle Teeuwen shows how these authorities deployed organisational and rhetorical tactics-including creating awareness, establishing trust, and exerting pressure-to successfully promote fundraising campaigns. Not only did many relief institutions manage to collect large annual sums, but contributions came from across the socioeconomic spectrum.
