A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Korean science is closely related to traditional Chinese technology, but Sang-woon Jeon's A History of Korean Science and Technology shows that Korean scientists, engineers and technicians adapted Chinese practice to suit the natural elements, seasons and climate of the Korean peninsula. Jeon develops his thesis by considering the creative legacy of Korean practitioners in a number of different areas, including astronomy and meterology ("the sciences of heavens"), metal, glass and gunpowder ("the sciences of earth and fire"), printing, geography and cartography. He concludes with a comparison of science and technology in Korea and Japan, and with a discussion of important scientists active during the Choson Period.

The book is filled with new information and fresh arguments. His conclusions will be useful for professional scholars in the history of science and technology and also for general historians, as it provides topics for academic debate and fruitful indications for research. The lavish illustrations support the writer's thesis and are themselves part of Korea's rich artistic heritage.
