The Beginnings of Western Science, a book by David Lindberg

The summer 2010 issue of The Objective Standard contains a book review written by me. The book is The Beginnings of Western Science: The European Scientific Tradition in Philosophical, Religious, and Institutional Context, Prehistory to A.D. 1450, by David Lindberg:

I first read this book when I was studying the history of science at Indiana University about ten years ago, and I was happy to have the opportunity to finally write a review of it for publication.

This issue also contains Daniel Wahl's review of the book Freethinkers: A History of American Secularism by Susan Jacoby. I have read Jacoby's book, and I completely agree with Mr. Wahl's mostly negative review.

The issue also includes a brief interview with philosopher of science David Harriman, and many other articles worth reading.
