4Title:  Empires of knowledge: scientific networks in the early modern world   
 Creator:  Findlen, Paula 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references and index. Empires of Knowledge charts the emergence of different kinds of scientific networks - local and long-distance, informal and institutional, religious and secular - between the fifteenth and the eighteenth centuries as one of the important phenomena of the early modern world. It seeks to answer what role these networks played in making knowledge, how information traveled, how was it transformed by travel, and who were the brokers of this world? 0This book brings together an international group of historians of science and medicine to explore the changing relationship between knowledge and community in the early modern period through case studies connecting Europe, Asia, the Ottoman Empire, and the Americas. It explores a landscape of understanding (and misunderstanding) nature through examinations of well-known intelligencers such as overseas missions, trading companies, and empires while incorporating more recent scholarship on the many less prominent go-betweens, such as translators and local experts, which made these networks of knowledge vibrant and truly global institutions. Empires of Knowledge is the perfect introduction to the global history of early modern science and medicine.

7Title:  Galileo engineer   
 Creator:  Valleriani, Matteo. 
 Publication:  Springer, Dordrecht [Netherlands], New York, c2010. 
 Notes:  "The Historical epistemology of mechanics ... the second study of the series"--P. xiii. "Dissertation zur Erlangung des Doktorgrades an der Philosophischen Fakultät I der Humboldt Universitat zu Berlin"--P. [iv]. Includes bibliographical references (p. 299-313) and indexes. "This work systematically investigates and reconstructs the practical knowledge Galileo shared during his lifetime. Galileo shared many aspects of practical knowledge. These included the methods and experience of foremen and engineers active within various frameworks. Galileo did not always react to such scientific impulses in the same way. On the one hand, he not only shared practical knowledge, but also acted as an engineer, especially within the framework of the art of war at the end of the sixteenth century, and more so during the time he spent in Padua. On the other hand, his scientific achievements were largely based on and influenced by aspects of practical knowledge coming from particular disciplines and activities, without him ever becoming an expert in these disciplines. Two case studies, the first concerned with Galileo's theory of the strength of materials and the second with his achievement of an atomistic heat doctrine, enable a focus on the early modern model of generation of new scientific knowledge based on the conflicting interaction between aspects of practical knowledge and Aristotelian theoretical assumptions"--Provided by publisher.
