bookAn Introduction to the History of Science in Non-Western Traditions

This new volume aims to introduce the pursuit of science in Non-Western traditions through a series of brief essays and reading lists, in the style of a richly annotated syllabus. There are contributions on China, India, Latin America, Native America, Australia and the Pacific and Japan. Each chapter begins with an introduction that addresses the scope, noteworthy scientific achievements and major figures in each particular tradition. Listed, too, are major references, coupled with a list of major sources for addressing current scholarship: significant journals, newsletters, Web sites, listservs, study centers, or professional organizations where someone can update the sources on their reading lists, review the lastest research, or contact persons in the filed. Each chapter then presents a six-day "syllabus" with a brief synopsis for each day's theme or focus. Each day includes a list of student readings: approximately 1.5 hours of introductory material.
