The need to treat in a single journal all aspects of scientific activity and thought to the eighteenth century is due to two factors: to the continued importance of ancient sources throughout the Middle Ages and the early modern period, and to the comparably low degree of specialization and the high degree of disciplinary interdependence characterizing the period before the professionalization of science. The journal, which limits itself to the Western, Byzantine and Arabic traditions, is particularly interested in emphasizing these elements of continuity and interconnectedness, and it encourages their diachronic study from a variety of viewpoints, including commented text editions and monographic studies of historical figures and scientific questions or practices. Early Science and Medicine, which contains an extended book review section, has recently also begun to dedicate special feature sections to emerging historiographic fields and methods of research. The main language of the journal is English, although contributions in French and German are also accepted." Christoph Luthy (Ph.D. in the History of Science, Harvard University, 1995) is a Research Fellow of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. He has previously worked at the Dibner Institute (M.I.T., Cambridge, Mass.), the Swiss Institute (Rome), and the Max-Planck-Institut fur Wissenschaftsgeschichte (Berlin). He is particularly interested in early modern matter theory, notably atomism, and the graphic aspects of scientific theories, and has a pronounced weakness for Julius Caesar Scaliger, Giordano Bruno, David Gorlaeus, Daniel Sennert, and Rene Descartes.
