HS 338 - Magic, Science, and Religion: Cultural History of the Scientific Revolution

(3.00 cr.)

Between the sixteenth and twentieth centuries, the cultural framework of European society was fundamentally altered from one in which magic permeated both religious beliefs and scientific inquiries, to one in which the scientific outlook dominated all intellectual pursuits. Focuses on the social, political, and intellectual changes which facilitated such a radical shift in the European world view. Concentrates on the rise and decline of the witch craze, the scientific revolution, the growth of positivism, and recent attempts to deal with relativity in mathematics and physics.
