This seminar will provide an introduction to the study of science as a proper subject of historical inquiry. We shall read and discuss cutting-edge research in the history of science from the scientific revolution to the age of Enlightenment, and thus critically engage with a variety of dominant themes and approaches. We shall pay particular attention to the way in which historians have reconstructed the complex interaction of science and society in the early modern world.
