Gaukroger S. (ed.) The Uses of Antiquity: The Scientific Revolution and the Classical Tradition
Springer, 1991. — 259 p.
Antiquity was conceived of, put to use, and reassessed in various ways in natural philosophy and what might broadly be termed metaphysics in the period between Copernicus and Newton. The papers in this collection deal with questions about the symbolic and polemical uses of antiquity, with antiquity as a fund of ideas or as a source of evidence, and above all with the ways in which an image of antiquity was constructed and put to use in contemporary debates.
