Swift and Science : The Satire, Politics and Theology of Natural Knowledge, 1690-1730 Hardback

Description

It is thought that Swift was opposed to the new science that heralded the beginning of the modern age, but this book interrogates that assumption, tracing the theological, political, and socio-cultural resonances of scientific knowledge in the early eighteenth century, and considering what they can reveal about Swift's imagination.
