Research interests

Professor Gaukroger’s research is centred on a long-term project on the emergence and consolidation of a scientific culture in the West in the modern era. Two volumes have already appeared: The Emergence of a Scientific Culture: Science and the Shaping of Modernity, 1210-1685 (Oxford, 2005) and The Collapse of Mechanism and the Rise of Sensibility: Science and the Shaping of Modernity, 1680-1760 (Oxford, 2010). He is currently working on the third volume in the series, The Naturalization of the Human and the Humanization of Nature: Science and the Shaping of Modernity, 1740-1845.
