Whewell was one of the first to write about the history and philosophy of science, when the subject was still one of contention. This book looks at his work in the early Victorian period.
'! a thoughtful discussion of the emergence of science as a major factor in the definition of Victorian civilisation.' Metascience '! at once a seminal vocational biography of the most prominent Victorian metascientist, and a penetrating study of the complex debate about the nature of science in nineteenth century Britain. It is a book no student of Victorian intellectual history can afford to ignore.' Isis
