Quakers, Jews, and Science Religious Responses to Modernity and the Sciences in Britain, 1650-1900

Beschreibung

How do science and religion interact? Geoffrey Cantor examines the ways in which the Quaker and Anglo-Jewish communities engaged with the sciences in early modern and 19th-century Britain. Of central interest are the responses of both communities to the challenge of modernity posed by Victorian science and especially by Darwin's controversial theory of evolution.
