Science and Engineering in Ireland in 1798

A Time of Revolution

Edited by: Patrick N. Wyse Jackson

Proceedings of a symposium organised by the National Committee for the History and Philosopy of Science, 4th November 1998. During the bicentenary of the 1798 rebellion much attention was paid to the military and historical events of the period, and the work of contemporary scientists was largely ignored by commentators. This volume seeks to redress the balance between history and the history of science and to place on record the achievements of Irish scientists in the late 1700s.
