Pietro Omodeo (Editor), Karin Friedrich (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

The books is the product of two conferences and a tailored approach to life and work of Duncan Liddel, a medical doctor and mathematician from Aberdeen in Scotland, who built networks through his appointment at one of Germany's Protestant Humanist universities (the University of Helmstedt) at the turn of the 17th century. Through Liddel's networks the book examines the flow of ideas and cultural exchange in the early modern sciences between the British Isles and continental Europe. The conferences were funded, by the Wellcome Trust, the Herzog August Library and the University of Aberdeen's Humanities Fund, among other sources.
