Beschrijving

Claire Preston argues that Thomas Browne's work can be fully understood only within the range of disciplines and practices associated with natural philosophy and early modern empiricism. Early modern methods of cataloguing, collecting, experimentation and observation, drove his writing on many subjects from medicine and botany to archaeology and antiquarianism. In this illuminating study, Preston examines how the developing essay form, the discourse of scientific experiment, and above all Bacon's model of intellectual progress and cooperation determined the unique character of his contributions to early modern literature, science and philosophy.
