Machina mundi: Hur medeltida tänkare föregrep modern vetenskap

Henrik Lagerlund och Sylvain Roudaut om hur modern vetenskap föregreps i medeltida filosofi i tidskriften Aeon magazine.

The predominant assumption about the rise of modern science is that it went hand in hand with the conception of nature as a universal mechanism. By viewing nature in this way, it could be studied, analysed and experimented upon with mathematical rigour, and its functioning could be elucidated by physicists harnessing empirical methods.
