Riassunto: The Science of the Soul challenges long-standing notions of Puritan provincialism as antithetical to the Enlightenment. Sarah Rivett demonstrates that, instead, empiricism and natural philosophy combined with Puritanism to transform the scope of religious activity in colonial New England from the 1630s to the Great Awakening of the 1740s.

In an unprecedented move, Puritan ministers from Thomas Shepard and John Eliot to Cotton Mather and Jonathan Edwards studied the human soul using the same systematic methods that philosophers applied to the study of nature. In particular, they considered the testimonies of tortured adolescent girls at the center of the Salem witch trials, Native American converts, and dying women as a source of material insight into the divine. Conversions and deathbed speeches were thus scrutinized for evidence of grace in a way that bridged the material and the spiritual, the visible and the invisible, the worldly and the divine.

In this way, the "science of the soul" was as much a part of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century natural philosophy as it was part of post-Reformation theology. Rivett's account restores the unity of religion and science in the early modern world and highlights the role and importance of both to transatlantic circuits of knowledge formation.

Book Description: "Admirable for its erudition and impeccable in its scholarship, The Science of the Soul in Colonial New England challenges the conventional wisdom that scientific modernity is the product of secularization. It compellingly shows the inextricable interconnectedness of empiricism and faith in early British America and the Atlantic world. It is a 'must read' for historians of science and religion alike, as well as for all scholars of early American literature."--Ralph Bauer, University of Maryland

"Admirable for its erudition and impeccable in its scholarship, The Science of the Soul in Colonial New England challenges the conventional wisdom that scientific modernity is the product of secularization. It compellingly shows the inextricable interconnectedness of empiricism and faith in early British America and the Atlantic world. It is a 'must read' for historians of science and religion alike, as well as for all scholars of early American literature." - Ralph Bauer, University of Maryland "Tracing the astonishing ways in which early empiricism and Protestant theology and conversionary practices intersected and diverged in their quest for unknowable knowledge, Rivett's study reanimates intellectual history. Simultaneously local and global, dependent on the evidence of marginalized voices as much as elite theories, the quest for a science of the soul offers a new narrative of our own modernity." - Teresa Toulouse, University of Colorado "The Science of the Soul in Colonial New England employs a strikingly novel perspective, the interpenetration of early modern science with Reformed theology and philosophy, to cast a long-familiar axial narrative of early American history in new light. Rivett challenges a historiographic age steeped in Atlanticism and critical theory to rethink the classic tale of New England Puritanisms evolution." - Charles L. Cohen, University of Wisconsin-Madison (Key Words: Soul, Colonial America, New England, Sarah Rivett, Puritanism, Thomas Shepard John Eliot, Cotton Mather, Jonathan Edwards).
