In un’epoca in cui scienza e tecnica dominano l’esistenza di gran parte della popolazione mondiale e nella quale l’impatto delle attività umane sull’ambiente ha scosso la fiducia in un inarrestabile progresso, il tema della nascita della scienza moderna continua a far discutere. Ci si interroga sulle sue origini e sulle sue finalità, ma anche sui rapporti tra forme della vita sociale e forme di conoscenza. Il volume esamina le relazioni tra le scienze e le tecniche in differenti contesti culturali, economici e sociali, dalle civiltà del Vicino Oriente antico fino agli inizi dell’età moderna. Il libro ricostruisce le vicende di quegli uomini che, per rispondere alle sfide del loro tempo, in ben precise condizioni storiche hanno indagato la natura e il corpo umano, hanno elaborato e prodotto teorie ed esperimenti e hanno trasformato, a volte anche in modo irreversibile, l’ecosistema. [Abstract translated by Google Translate: This is the abstract in English… In an age in which science and technology dominate the existence of a large part of the world's population and in which the impact of human activities on the environment has shaken confidence in unstoppable progress, the theme of the birth of modern science continues to spark debate. We wonder about its origins and its aims, but also about the relationships between forms of social life and forms of knowledge. This volume examines the relationships between sciences and techniques in different cultural, economic and social contexts, from the civilizations of the ancient Near East to the early modern period. The book reconstructs the events of those men who, in order to respond to the challenges of their time, under very specific historical conditions investigated nature and the human body, elaborated and produced theories and experiments and transformed, sometimes even irreversibly, the ecosystem.]
