Product description

Review

'Individual scholars interested in the idea of mechanism or the mechanical in the Renaissance, or more generally in history of our understanding of machines, will find it an extremely useful place to start or continue their studies …' Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Teaching

Book Description

This book explores how mechanics participate in the intellectual culture of Renaissance humanism. Harnessing the discipline of mechanics to their literary and philosophical concerns, writers including Francis Bacon and Edmund Spenser look to machinery to ponder all manner of instrumental means, from rhetoric and pedagogy to diplomacy and courtly dissimulation.
