Sobre o livro
Science in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Istanbul, Harun Kucuk argues, was without leisure, a phenomenon spurred by the price revolution a century earlier when scientific texts all but disappeared from the college curriculum and inflation reduced the wages of professors to one-tenth of what they were in the sixteenth century.
