How the Medieval World Laid the Foundations of Modern Science
God’s Philosophers celebrates the forgotten achievements of the medieval world. Focusing on the rise of science, it shows how natural philosophers of the Middle Ages laid the foundations of the ‘Scientific Revolution’. Without their work, there would have been no Copernicus, no Galileo and no Newton.
By emphasising the important positive role of Christianity on medieval science, God’s Philosopherscontributes to the current debate about the relationship between science and religion which is still raging in the media. The book makes it impossible to maintain that the medieval Church held back the rise of science.
Combining the author’s original research with the latest scholarship, God’s Philosopherspresents a radical narrative that will challenge and intrigue readers. It provides the detail and quotations from primary sources to prove its controversial thesis whilst also remaining lively and accessible to the general reader. It assumes no background knowledge and clearly explains complex ideas in a simple manner using everyday examples.
It was shortlisted for the Royal Society Science Book Prize 2010 and the British Society for the History of Science Dingle Book Prize 2011.
