Review "Enrico Bellone, Professor of the History of Science at the University of Genoa, argues in A World on Paper that the second scientific revolution really began much earlier in the nineteenth century and that it did not result from the decline of mechanism or a specific set of experiments but rather involved the emergence of mathematical theory as a source of scientific problems and objective knowledge. This excellent translation of his book should prove stimulating to American and British historians of science...."

"My attention was first drawn to this book by its title, for Galileo and Kepler had both contrasted the 'paper world' of natural philosophers with the 'sensible world' of observation at the opening of the scientific revolution of the seventeenth century. Enrico Bellone, of the University of Genoa's Institute of Physics, writes of a later scientific revolution, hitherto less accessible to non-physicists. The historiographical approach which he applies, and which in a very real sense he created, is of such intrinsic interest and wide applicability that I urge its study by everyone concerned with physics, philosophy, or history of ideas, scientific or otherwise."
