Wissenschaftsgeschichte kann sich heute nicht mehr damit begnügen, den Fortschritt der Erkenntnisse zu beschreiben. Vielmehr gilt es, den Blick auf die spezifischen Praktiken der Wissenschaftler zu richten und die kulturellen und gesellschaftlichen Zusammenhänge zu analysieren, in denen bestimmte Wissenschaften entwickelt und verändert wurden. In diesem Band wird Wissenschaft als soziale und kulturelle Praxis untersucht, als ein gesellschaftliches Element unter anderen. Wie wird Wissenschaft produziert und angeeignet? Welche Schritte sind zurückzulegen, bis ein wissenschaftliches Produkt, etwa in Form einer Publikation, gestaltet ist? Welche Verfahrensweisen werden gewählt, um das Ergebnis von der Subjektivität des Forschers abzulösen und es auf die Ebene wissenschaftlicher 'Objektivität' zu heben? Die Autorinnen und Autoren dieses Bandes befassen sich mit so verschiedenen Wissenschaften wie Biologie und Geschichte, Medizin, Ethnographie und Kriminologie in der Periode, in der sich 'moderne Wissenschaft' herausbildete. In übergreifenden Darstellungen und in detaillierten Fallstudien durchbrechen sie immer wieder die Grenzen einzelner Disziplinen, stellen neue Ansätze vor und erproben ungewohnte Fragestellungen.

This Handbook re-examines the concept of early modern history in a European and global context. The term 'early modern' has been familiar, especially in Anglophone scholarship, for four decades and is securely established in teaching, research, and scholarly publishing. More recently, however, the unity implied in the notion has fragmented, while the usefulness and even the validity of the term, and the historical periodisation which it incorporates, have been questioned. The Oxford Handbook of Early Modern European History, 1350-1750 provides an account of the development of the subject during the past half-century, but primarily offers an integrated and comprehensive survey of present knowledge, together with some suggestions as to how the field is developing. It aims both to interrogate the notion of 'early modernity' itself and to survey early modern Europe as an established field of study. The overriding aim will be to establish that 'early modern' is not simply a chronological label but possesses a substantive integrity. Volume I examines 'Peoples and Place', assessing structural factors such as climate, printing and the revolution in information, social and economic developments, and religion, including chapters on Orthodoxy, Judaism and Islam.
