The articles collected in this volume of Science in Context have as their common theme the history of early science. The reader will note the great diversity of the subjects dealt with in this volume, and also some strong commonalities. In our view, this tension between diversity and commonality is central to the historiography of early science, and may represent an important value of this study. To see this, let us first consider the papers in sequence
