The Genesis of the Copernican World


This major work by the German philosopher Hans Blumenberg is a monumental rethinking of the significance of the Copernican revolution for our understanding of modernity. It provides an important corrective to the view of science as an autonomous enterprise and presents a new account of the history of interpretations of the significance of the heavens for man.

This book is included in the series Studies in Contemporary German Social Thought, edited by Thomas McCarthy
