Monograph

Breve storia della biologia dalle origini al XX secolo

  • Alberto Mario Simonetta,

More and more, in the last three centuries, Natural Sciences have become critically important for the development of civilization, and their influence on our daily life grows day by day. However, the history of Biological Sciences has been largely ignored: despite the proliferation of books on the different aspects of biology, and although there is a parallel growing concern about environmental problems, up to now a methodical discussion on the development of all biological disciplines from their origins has been lacking. The volume therefore intends to fill this gap, placing itself as a meeting point between teaching purposes and advanced disclosure, and with the aim of drawing a wider public closer to scientific culture. In this sense, it was conceived as a historical journey, but with attention to the figures of scientists as well as to their research work. The development of biological knowledge and theories from ancient times to the beginning of the 20th century is illustrated with an agile synthesis, placing it within the historical and cultural events of each period.
