Asia, Europe, and the Emergence of Modern Science: Knowledge Crossing Boundaries
About the publication
Bringing together essays from leading thinkers across the sciences and humanities, this ground-breaking volume explores the role Asian knowledge traditions played in the rise of modern European science in Europe, the implications this has for the epistemology of science, and the question of whether pre-modern Asian traditions can aid in advancing future scientific knowledge. Included here are contributions covering a wide range of Asian cultures, which allow a richer, better-contextualized perspective on different scientific traditions while providing insights into cross-cultural knowledge transmission and intellectual reappropriation.
