About this book

Language: English

The Swedish botanist, zoologist and physician Carl Linneaus (1707–1778) profoundly changed the way we think of nature and science. His works have helped us comprehend our world, and his influence on science is still of greatest value.

A Linnaean Kaleidoscope is the first comprehensive introduction to all the 186 Linnaean dissertations. In the form of short essays, his works are described, his thoughts expressed and put into their historical context. Including insightful commentary and analysis, this book shows how Linneaus' dissertations reflect important scientific themes as well as his own domains of interest. His writings open the doors to the diverse and thrilling scientific world of the 18th century. Beautifully illustrated with original plates and frontispieces, the two volumes of a A Linnaean Kaleidoscope is a unique contribution to the history of ideas and science.
