"The book examines six particularly fascinating episodes of scientific inquiry and dispute in the London of the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, bringing to life the individuals involved and the challenges they faced. These men and women experimented and invented, argued and competed, waged wars in the press, and struggled to understand the complexities of the natural world. Together their stories illuminate the blind alleys and surprising twists and turns taken as medieval philosophy gave way to the empirical, experimental culture that became a hallmark of the Scientific Revolution."--BOOK JACKET.
