British Weather and the Climate of Enlightenment

British Weather and the Climate of Enlightenment GOLINSKI, Jan

Enlightenment inquiries into weather sought to impose order on a force that had the power to alter human life and social conditions. This title reveals how a sense of the national climate emerged in the 18th century from the systematic recording of the weather, and how it was deployed in discussions of the health and welfare of the population.
