    science, especially those who want to tell a di‐ achronic story, and most especially those who wish to tell such a story in a grand sweep, as does David C. Lindberg in The Beginnings of Western Science. In a chronicle covering more than two thousand years of history it is impossible to in‐ clude everything--some compass must be used. The history of science is the study of the development of science, including both the natural and social sciences (the history of the arts and humanities is termed history of scholarship).Science is a body of empirical, theoretical, and practical knowledge about the natural world, produced by scientists who emphasize the observation, explanation, and prediction of real-world phenomena.

The Beginnings of Western Science 5/5(1). Despite its substantial flaws, The Beginnings of Western Science is a fascinating overview of the history of science, from its earliest origins to the dawn of the Scientific Revolution.

In all, the second edition of "The Beginnings of Western Science" captures the current state of our understanding of more than two millennia of science and promises to continue to inspire both students and general readers/5(30).
