Peter Lipton (1954–2007): British philosopher, the Hans Rausing Professor and Head of the Department of History .

Peter Lipton (1954–2007): British philosopher, the Hans Rausing Professor and Head of the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at Cambridge University until his unexpected death in November 2007. He was "one of the leading philosophers of science and epistemologists in the world. But what of a man who had signed up as a communist immediately on his arrival, who was unashamedly an atheist, a realist where philosophers were expected to be idealists, who freely mixed with students when he was expected to meet them only in classes or, very occasionally, in their studies? Trouble was bound to loom ahead.

The 18th century is the century of Reason. But the stylish and lavish shops that filled 18th century London were also a visible sign of growing national power. The Essay on Music Century Nature Beethoven. The scientific movement of the 17th and 17th centuries: Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Bacon, Descartes, Newton produced a climate of opinion in which supernatural and occult explanations of natural phenomena ceased to satisfy.

The empire of man over things. Democratising the Great Instauration . Science and commerce in Restoration London. It is to Bacon that we owe the strong strand of pragmatism in 17th-century British science. Western scientific progress, he argued, was built upon a foundation of three key technological discoveries, which had changed man's ability to control the natural world. These three were printing, gunpowder, and the magnet. Among those active in the Society in the early years were some of the major figures in British science: Robert Boyle (1627-91), Robert Hooke (1635-1703), Sir Christopher Wren (1632-1723), and Sir William Petty (1623-87).

Seventeenth century philosophers favored talk of ‘passion’ and ‘affect . Locke's short discussion in Book II, chap.

Seventeenth century philosophers favored talk of ‘passion’ and ‘affect,’ while their eighteenth century counterparts made increasing use of ‘sentiment. Sentiment’ was a particularly popular term in British philosophy of the eighteenth century, as was ‘affection. XX of the Essay Concerning Human Understanding (1690) treats eleven; whereas Hume's Treatise and Dissertation on the Passions (1757) described about ten broad passions, as well as numerous sub-species and adjuncts, even before turning to the moral or aesthetic sentiments. This tendency is not simply found among the great early modern systems-builders.
