Reasoning with the Infinite: From the Closed World to the Mathematical Universe, Blay, Michael. Translated by M.B. DeBevoise
6 Blay, Michael. Translated by M.B. DeBevoise Reasoning with the Infinite: From the Closed World to the Mathematical Universe
London and Chicago University of Chicago Press 1998 0226058352 / 9780226058351 First Paperback Paperback Very Good Octavo 
216 pp. A few light stains and scuffing to illustrated covers; spine lightly sunned. A little wear to edges of text block. Internally clean, bright, solidly bound. "Until the Scientific Revolution, the nature and motions of heavenly objects were mysterious and unpredictable. The Scientific Revolution was revolutionary in part because it saw the advent of many mathematical tools -- chief among them the calculus -- that natural philosophers could use to explain and predict these cosmic motions. Michel Blay traces the origins of this mathematization of the world, from Galileo to Newton and Laplace, and considers the profound philosophical consequences of submitting the infinite to rational analysis."

7 Crosby, Alfred W. The Measure of Reality: Quantification and Western Society, 1250-1600

"Western Europeans were among the first, if not the first, to invent mechanical clocks, geometrically precise maps, double-entry bookkeeping, precise algebraic and musical notation, and perspective painting. 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."
