    Hey you! Shut it!



    HSTC 3310.03 : Hidden Worlds: Microscopy in Early Modern Europe.

    Microscopes were introduced into Europe at the beginning of the seventeenth century. In the words of Robert Hooke, the microscope opened up a “new visible World” to the understanding -- a strange new landscape populated by vast numbers of new creatures. This class will explore the influence the microscope, and the micro world that it opened up, in the development of early modern science. In the first part of the class, we will take a close look at early microscope technology and its evolution in the seventeenth, eighteenth, and early nineteenth centuries. The second part of the class will explore the role of the microscope in the evolution of early modern science. We will, for example, consider the role of microscopy in the emergence of the new mechanical philosophy and the new experimental science. We will also discuss the histories of some scientific theories (for example, of contagion and generation) that made particular use of observations made with microscopes. Finally, the microscope’s revelation of “new worlds” raised conceptual difficulties that puzzled scientists and philosophers alike. In the final part of the class we will consider the challenges that new kinds of experience raised for early modern philosophy, as well as the possible influence of philosophical debates on the acceptance of the new technology.

    HSTC 2300.03 : Omens, Science and Prediction in the Ancient World.

    This course will examine the history of astrology, astral magic, and divination in Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, and Rome, and look at their interactions and overlap with the sciences of astronomy, physics, and medicine. Indeed, early science developed in a close relationship with divination. For example, astronomy and astrology were conceptually indistinguishable throughout much of western history. Together, they reveal how people saw their place in the Cosmos, and they reflect the perceived relationship of humanity to nature and to the gods. For this reason, the history of early science cannot be understood without the history of divination. In this class we will take a multidisciplinary approach to the historical material, combining approaches from history, philosophy, classics, religious studies, and cultural anthropology.
