Book Summary:

The history of science is a story of human discovery--intertwined with religion, philosophy, economics and technology. The fourth in a series, this book covers the beginnings of the modern world, when 16th-century Europeans began to realize that their scientific achievements surpassed those of the Greeks and Romans. Western Civilization organized itself around the idea that human technological and moral progress was achievable and desirable. Science emerged in 17th-century Europe as scholars subordinated reason to empiricism. Inspired by the example of physics, men like Robert Boyle began the process of changing alchemy into the exact science of chemistry. During the 18th century, European society became more secular and tolerant. Philosophers and economists developed many of the ideas underpinning modern social theories and economic policies. As the Industrial Revolution fundamentally transformed the world by increasing productivity, people became more affluent, better educated and urbanized, and the world entered an era of unprecedented prosperity and progress.

Book Summary:

This book is a clear and comprehensive analysis of the dynamic connections between science, technology, and economic development from the eighteenth century to the present. Science and technology are now recognized as the crucial components of economic development in poor nations, the motors of growth in developing economies, and among the central issues of contemporary advanced societies. Yet the relationships between science and technology on the one hand, and between science and technology and economic modernization on the other, are little understood and constantly changing. Ian Inkster includes extended treatments of Japan, China and India, as well as the process of industrialization in the West. Important historical themes, such as the industrial revolution, the transfer of technology and the role of institutions in knowledge and technique diffusion, are approached through the use of detailed historical case studies. For the first time, Inkster draws together a large and complex body of secondary literature, as well as material derived from the author's own research on Britain, Japan, India, and Australia.
