History of Science, Ottoman or Otherwise

I manage this show

What did it mean to practice science in the Ottoman Empire? Who pursued it and why? And how should scholars approach the topic today? This series of podcasts introduces the research of scholars challenging the traditional story of science in the Ottoman Empire. Setting aside the long held assumptions of the passive recipient of European science or of a golden age stymied by religious obscurantism, these podcasts explore how the Muslims understood nature in their own terms. Some examine topics and actors traditionally regarded as outside the bounds of science, such as alchemy, while others reveal connections to broader worlds of intellectual exchange. Yet others situate seemingly cerebral sciences like astronomy or medicine in the everyday contexts of religion and charity. Together they reveal a new and vibrant intellectual world.
