Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "When it was first rediscovered in Japan early last century, modernist Japanese, Chinese, and Euro-American scholars hastily assimilated Song Yingxing's Tiangong kaiwu to the accruing literature on the allegedly ill-fated history of science and technology in late imperial China. They framed an overdetermined view of Song's accomplishments in light of the failure of China to develop 'modern science.' This simple-minded teleology has now been challenged by Dagmar Schfer. Schfer contextualizes Song's so-called magnum opus by placing this longest and most prominent of Song's works alongside his other writings, and reenacts for us the culturally embedded practices that informed Song Yingxing's career of knowledge-making in a time of precocious commercialization and commoditization in Ming China.".
