This volume offers tributes from ten of Paolo Rossi’s many colleagues and admirers outside of Italy on the occasion of his eightieth birthday. They take up several of the topics to which he has made pioneering contributions during his long and distinguished scholarly career: Francis Bacon and the character of seventeenth-century natural philosophy, the history of geology, classifications of knowledge, and other branches of early modern thought.
