A neglected figure of seventeenth-century science, interest is now growing in Robert Hooke. The four authors, all expert historians, have come together to provide a significant revaluation of Hooke's life and work: his career as a public man, his instrument designing and making, his scientific thought, and the private world of his personal life, his illnesses and his medications.
Preface; List of Illustrations; 1. Hooke's Career; 2. Hooke's Instruments; 3. Hooke the Natural Philsopher; 4. Hooke the Man: His Diary and His Health; Notes; Index
