Late Seventeenth Century Scientists: A Volume in The Commonwealth and International Library: Liberal Studies Division by Donald Hutchings

Late Seventeenth Century Scientists provides information on the lives and scientific works of scientists who were active in the latter half of the 17th century. This book discusses the outstanding achievements of physical science in the 17th century.
Organized into six chapters, this book begins with an overview of the Robert Boyle's greatest contribution to scientific understanding when he pioneered physical methods and insisted that a substance should be regarded as an element until it can be further resolved into simpler substances. This text then examines the scientific works of Marcello Malpighi wherein he concludes in his treatise on the liver that bile is secreted in the gall-bladder itself and not in the liver. Other chapters consider the contributions of various scientists, including Christopher Wren, Christiaan Huygens, and Robert Hooke. The final chapter deals with Isaac Newton's ideas of mass and force.
This book is a valuable resource for teachers, students, and researchers.
