Riffing off the title of this blog and the question, when was the Scientific Renaissance I develop my thoughts on the problems of dividing history up into artificial periods.
If your philosophy of [scientific] history claims that the sequence should have been A→B→C, and it is C→A→B, then your philosophy of history is wrong. You have to take the data of history seriously.
