    A History of Natural Philosophy: From the Ancient World to the Nineteenth Century.Edward Grant - 2007 - Cambridge University Press.
    Natural philosophy encompassed all natural phenomena of the physical world. It sought to discover the physical causes of all natural effects and was little concerned with mathematics. By contrast, the exact mathematical sciences were narrowly confined to various computations that did not involve physical causes, functioning totally independently of natural philosophy. Although this began slowly to change in the late Middle Ages, a much more thoroughgoing union of natural philosophy and mathematics occurred in the seventeenth century and thereby made the (...)

    Much Ado About Nothing: Theories of Space and Vacuum From the Middle Ages to the Scientific Revolution.Edward Grant - 1981 - Cambridge University Press.
    The primary objective of this study is to provide a description of the major ideas about void space within and beyond the world that were formulated between the fourteenth and early eighteenth centuries. The second part of the book - on infinite, extracosmic void space - is of special significance. The significance of Professor Grant's account is twofold: it provides the first comprehensive and detailed description of the scholastic Aristotelian arguments for and against the existence of void space; and it (...)

    God and Reason in the Middle Ages.Edward Grant - 2001 - Cambridge University Press.
    Between 1100 and 1600, the emphasis on reason in the learning and intellectual life of Western Europe became more pervasive and widespread than ever before in the history of human civilization. Of crucial significance was the invention of the university around 1200, within which reason was institutionalized and where it became a deeply embedded, permanent feature of Western thought and culture. It is therefore appropriate to speak of an Age of Reason in the Middle Ages, and to view it as (...)

    Celestial Motions in the Late Middle Ages.Edward Grant - 1997 - Early Science and Medicine 2 (2):129-148.
    With the introduction of Greco-Islamic science and natural philosophy, medieval natural philosophers were confronted with three distinct astronomical systems: Aristotelian, Ptolemaic, and the system of al-Bitruji. A fundamental problem that each had to confront was how to explain simultaneous contrary motions in the heavens -for example, the sun's motion, which moves east to west with a daily motion while simultaneously moving west to east along the ecliptic- within an Aristotelian physical system that assumed that a simple body could have only (...)

    Scientific Imagination in the Middle Ages.Edward Grant - 2004 - Perspectives on Science 12 (4):394-423.
    : Following Aristotle, medieval natural philosophers believed that knowledge was ultimately based on perception and observation; and like Aristotle, they also believed that observation could not explain the "why" of any perception. To arrive at the "why," natural philosophers offered theoretical explanations that required the use of the imagination. This was, however, only the starting point. Not only did they apply their imaginations to real phenomena, but expended even more intellectual energy on counterfactual phenomena, both extracosmic and intracosmic, extensively discussing, (...)

    Henricus Aristippus, William of Moerbeke and Two Alleged Mediaeval Translations of Hero's Pneumatica*Article Author Querygrant E [Google Scholar].Edward Grant - 1971 - Speculum 46 (4):656-699.
    It has long been accepted that by the third quarter of the thirteenth century at least two Latin translations had been made from the Greek text of the Pneumatica of Hero of Alexandria. Evidence of the first of these was discovered by Valentin Rose in Henricus Aristippus' prologue to his translation of Plato's Phaedo completed in 1156. Some fifty years later, on the basis of a letter written in 1274 following the death of St Thomas Aquinas, Alexander Birkenmajer attributed a (...)
