 Description
 Book — xi, 332 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm
 Summary

Although hints of a crisis appeared as early as the 1570s, the temperature by the end of the sixteenth century plummeted so drastically that Mediterranean harbors were covered with ice, birds literally dropped out of the sky, and "frost fairs" were erected on a frozen Thameswith kiosks, taverns, and even brothels that become a semipermanent part of the city. Recounting the deep legacy and farranging consequences of this "Little Ice Age, " acclaimed historian Philipp Blom reveals how the European landscape had suddenly, but ineradicably, changed by the midseventeenth century. While apocalyptic weather patterns destroyed entire harvests and incited mass migrations, they gave rise to the growth of European cities, the emergence of early capitalism, and the vigorous stirrings of the Enlightenment. A timely examination of how a society responds to profound and unexpected change, Nature's Mutiny will transform the way we think about climate change in the twentyfirst century and beyond.

 Mancosu, Paolo.
 New York : Oxford University Press, 1996.
 Description
 Book — 275 p.
 Summary

This book provides the first comprehensive account of the relationship between philosophy of mathematics and the mathematical practice of the seventeenth century  the most eventful period of mathematical development in history. Starting with the Renaissance debates on the certainty of mathematics, the author leads the readers through the foundational issues raised by the emergence of new mathematical techniques including the influence of the Aristotelian conception of science in Cavalieri and Guldin. In the process Mancosu draws a sophisticated picture of the subtle dependencies between technical developments and philosophical reflection in seventeenth century mathematics.
