By the 16th century more people were thinking quantitatively in western Europe than in any other part of the world. [This book] discusses the epochal shift from qualitative to quantitative perception in Western Europe during the late Middle Ages and Renaissance. This shift made modern science, technology, business practice, and bureaucracy possible."
