Editorial Review

Product Description
This volume assembles nine studies of the life and work of Thomas Harriot (1560-1621). These are based on lectures that have been given annually at Oriel College, Oxford, since 1990, by such authorities as Hugh Trevor Roper, David Quinn and John D. North. An astronomer and mathematician whose activities embraced not only science but also philosophical debate and an engagement in the early exploration of America, Harriot occupied a prominent place in intellectual and public life. He was well read in the contemporary literature of science, and his writings on algebra, his correspondence, and his early observations with the telescope, undertaken at the same time as Galileo's, brought him to the attention of leading men of science both in Britain and abroad. Recent scholarship has enhanced historians' appreciation of Harriot's achievements and of the scientific context and social milieu in which he worked, a milieu distinguished by his friendship with Walter Raleigh and the Ninth Earl of Northumberland (the "Wizard Earl" whose association with the Gunpowder Plot led to many years of imprisonment in the Tower).The contributions to this text seek to shed light on all the main aspects of Harriot's life and form a re-evaluation of one of the most gifted and intriguing figures in early modern British science. ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
Although during his lifetime the bulk of his work went unpublished, Renaissance scholar Thomas Harriot is now recognized as a major contributor to many fields of learning, such as mathematics, astronomy, and botany. Harriot's theories, inventions, and discoveries were as groundbreaking as they were controversial. From his daring exploration of the New World to his scientific findings on subjects as diverse as alchemy and the moons of Jupiter, Harriot's accomplishments reflect the endless curiosity of a remarkable mind. The author draws on the diary entries of Harriot's close friend, Thomas Buckner, and Harriot's own maps, diagrams, and handwritten notes, to capture the authentic flavor of an extraordinary time, as well as the enigmatic character of a genius. Index. ... Read more
