Details for Pierre Duhem and Alistair Crombie Revisited
NamePierre Duhem and Alistair Crombie Revisited

The penultimate pre-publication version of my paper, ‘Pierre Duhem and Alistair Crombie Revisited: Or, How to Recover the Formative Role of Medieval Catholic Natural Philosophizing in the Rise of Modern Science’ Connor Court Quarterly No.5/6 December 2012, pp.167-182 The paper is an experiment in historiography. It explores what, if anything, can today be usefully retrieved from the Medieval-centric ‘continuist’ historiographies of the rise of Modern Science of Pierre Duhen and Alistair Crombie, by making use of my own preferred categories and approaches to the problem. The title page explains why and for whom it was written.
