Riassunto: Whoever wants to understand the genesis of modern Science has to follow three lines of development, all starting in antiquity, which were brought together in the work of ISAAC NEWTON, namely 1. Ancient Mathematics => DESCARTES 2. Ancient Astronomy => COPERNICUS: I=> NEWTON 3. Ancient Mechanics => GALILEO => HUYGENS In Science Awakening I (Dutch edition 1950, first Eng1ish edition 1954, second 1961, first German edition 1956, second 1965) I have followed the first 1ine, giving an outline of the development of Mathematics in Egypt, Babylonia, and Greece. Volume II, dealing with Egyptian and Baby1onian Astronomy first appeared in German under the title 'Die Anfange der Astronomie' (Noordhoff, Groningen 1965 and Birkhau ser, Basel 1968). The volume was written in collaboration with PETER HUBER (Swiss Federal School of Technology, Zurich). HUBER has written considerable parts of Chap ters 3 and 4, in particular all transcriptions of cuneiform texts in these chapters. I also had much help from ERNST WEIDNER (Graz), MARTIN VERMASEREN (Amsterdam), JOSEF JANSEN (Leiden) and MANU LEUMANN (Zurich).

Index: Abbreviation, Foreign Words, Name, Subject. From the preface: "In this book we shall study the history of Egyptian and Babylonian astronomy in connection with stellar religion and astrology. In this way we shall avoid taking astronomy out of the historical and cultural context to which it belongs." Why not Greek astronomy? Van Der Waerden also states: ". the principle motive of the Greeks in developing their scientific astronomy was not the astrological application, but rather a specific interest in astronomy itself." [Therefore Greece, since you are above such mundane studies as astrology, you are excused from the following proceedings!]. I remember reading in some Asimov book his tirade on the goodness and purity of Greece. He even said something like: "Greece developed no interest in anything occult". My God, are we in the same universe? How many books do they want to see on Greek horoscopes, witchcraft, magic and mystery religions? Unbelievable fantasy! All MY tirade aside, this is a very rare and excellent follow-up to the author's Science Awakening I. Well worth owning. Codice libro della libreria 211
