Les récits de voyage aux pays froids au XVIIe siècle: de l'expérience du voyageur à l'expérimentation scientifique / Adina Ruiu.

Title: Les récits de voyage aux pays froids au XVIIe siècle: de l'expérience du voyageur à l'expérimentation scientifique / Adina Ruiu.
Translated title: Reports of travel in cold countries in the 17th century: from the traveller's experience to scientific experimentation.
Author(s): Ruiu, Adina.
Date: 2007.
Publisher: Montreal: Imaginaire Nord
Language: French.
Abstract: Explores common ground underlying seventeenth century French and English discourses on North by textual analysis of references to travel in works of astronomy, optics and natural history. Examines seventeenth century recognition of inconsistences within existing Aristotelian, Stoic and Cartesian theories and beginnings of climate study linked to birth of chemistry as scientific discipline, rather than as alchemy or magic. Transition from territorial to phenomenal reference projected North into scientific imagination through study of optical illusion.
