What drove pioneering scientists? Did they seek wisdom or wealth? Did they want to reveal nature or reform it? Were their insights brilliant or bizarre? And did they shape their world more than it shaped them?



In A History of Science, I explore the cultures, communities, and contexts in which these people gained their remarkable insights.



This podcast is produced by me, Dr Michiel Meulendijk. I am an information scientist and a history buff.
