By Joseph Needham
The new edition of this work restores a text of crucial importance to the understanding of the ‘thirties: but it does more. It reveals a great mind at work, sculpting new insights which are still entirely relevant to a new generation, struggling for human survival in the opening years of the twenty-first century. Joseph Needham contributed a new introduction.
Chapter Four is entitled Laud, the Levellers, and the Virtuosi.
