History of Science and Technology is related, on the one hand, to the fields devoted to scientific and technical disciplines and, on the other hand, to the field of epistemology. In addition to a summary presentation of the current methods and issues in the history of science, it offers a panorama of the evolution of knowledge in mathematics, the physical and natural sciences, as well as in humanities and technology, from their origins to the present day and within different cultural areas. It addresses both a non-specialist audience as well as scientists, for whom it provides a useful perspective on the origin and foundation of knowledge, while remaining close to current research in the history of science.
