Science and Dissent in England, 1688-1945 presents essays by internationally recognised experts on the relationships between puritanism, dissent, nonconformity and science in England. It reassesses the topic, and develops a better sense of the role played by dissenting protestants in the pursuit of science and technology in England from the Glorious Revolution to the end of the Second World War.By bringing together scholars from different periods, Science and Dissent in England, 1688-1945 develops a unique overview, exploring the continuities and discontinuities between scientific inquiry and dissenting Protestantism in England, which provides a fresh perspective on the subject.
