Science and Societies in Frankfurt am Main, Hardback Book

Science and Societies in Frankfurt am Main Hardback

Part of the Science & Culture in the Nineteenth Century series

Hardback

Description

The nineteenth century saw science move from being the preserve of a small learned elite to a dominant force which influenced society as a whole.

Sakurai presents a study of how scientific societies affected the social and political life of a city.

As it did not have a university or a centralized government, Frankfurt am Main is an ideal case study of how scientific associations - funded by private patronage for the good of the local populace - became an important centre for natural history.
