Based on new research, a distinguished international team studies the forms in which scientific knowledge was transmitted in the late medieval and early modern period, the ways they interacted, and the people to whom the knowledge was directed. Among the famous authors whose work is examined here are Fuchs, Vesalius, Tycho Brahe, and Descartes.
