  1. Atom and Individual in the Age of Newton: On the Genesis of the Mechanistic World View.Gideon Freudenthal - 1986 - Springer, Dordrecht.
    In this stimulating investigation, Gideon Freudenthal has linked social history with the history of science by formulating an interesting proposal: that the supposed influence of social theory may be seen as actual through its co herence with the process of formation of physical concepts. The reinterpre tation of the development of science in the seventeenth century, now widely influential, receives at Freudenthal's hand its most persuasive statement, most significantly because of his attention to the theoretical form which is charac teristic.

    Exploring the Limits of Preclassical Mechanics a Study of Conceptual Development in Early Modern Science : Free Fall and Compounded Motion in the Work of Descartes, Galileo, and Beeckman.Peter Damerow, Gideon Freudenthal, Peter McLaughlin & Jürgen Renn - 1992 - Springer.
    The question of when and how the basic concepts that characterize modern science arose in Western Europe has long been central to the history of science. This book examines the transition from Renaissance engineering and philosophy of nature to classical mechanics oriented on the central concept of velocity. For this new edition, the authors include a new discussion of the doctrine of proportions, an analysis of the role of traditional statics in the construction of Descartes' impact rules, and go deeper (...)

    No Religion Without Idolatry: Mendelssohn's Jewish Enlightenment.Gideon Freudenthal - 2012 - University of Notre Dame Press.
    Moses Mendelssohn is considered the foremost representative of Jewish Enlightenment. In _No Religion without Idolatry_, Gideon Freudenthal offers a novel interpretation of Mendelssohn’s general philosophy and discusses for the first time Mendelssohn’s semiotic interpretation of idolatry in his _Jerusalem _and in his Hebrew biblical commentary. Mendelssohn emerges from this study as an original philosopher, not a shallow popularizer of rationalist metaphysics, as he is sometimes portrayed. Of special and lasting value is his semiotic theory of idolatry. From a semiotic perspective, (...)

    The Hessen-Grossman Thesis: An Attempt at Rehabilitation.Gideon Freudenthal - 2005 - Perspectives on Science 13 (2):166-193.
    : The work of Boris Hessen and Henryk Grossman on the emergence of early modern science is an attempt at a historical sociology of science and a historical epistemology of scientific knowledge. One of their theses is elaborated here, namely that early modern mechanics developed in the study of contemporary technology. In particular I discuss the thesis that the replacement of the Aristotelian concept of motion by the modern general and mathematical concept developed in the study of transmission machines. In (...)

    Perpetuum Mobile: The Leibniz-Papin Controversy.Gideon Freudenthal - 2002 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part A 33 (3):573-637.
    ‘Controversy’ is here introduced as a technical term referring to one aspect of dispute. ‘Controversy’ is here understood as referring to an ongoing antagonistic exchange over a disagreement that cannot be readily resolved by the means at hand. However, the issue is being discussed because the participants believe that the controversy will be resolveable in the framework of a more advanced view which will be generated by the dispute. It is claimed that this ‘controversy’ merits study; it is not claimed (...)

    Salomon Maimon: Rational Dogmatist, Empirical Skeptic: Critical Assessments.Gideon Freudenthal (ed.) - 2003 - Kluwer Academic.
    Salomon Maimon (1753-1800), one of the most fascinating characters of eighteenth-century intellectual history, came from a traditional orthodox Jewish community in Eastern Europe to Berlin to seek Enlightenment. Maimon remained an outsider: an 'Ostjude' among the enlightened Jews in Berlin, a freethinker among observant Jews and a Jew among the non-Jews. His autobiography became a classic of autobiographical literature of the Enlightenment. His 'inter-cultural' experience is reflected in his philosophy. Indebted to the Maimonidean as well as to the modern European (...)

    Adam Smith's Analytic-Synthetic Method and the ‘System of Natural Liberty’.Gideon Freudenthal - 1981 - History of European Ideas 2 (2):135-154.
    In the present paper I shall deal with Adam Smith's application of the analytic-synthetic method, which he considered to be the scientific method par excellence. I shall concentrate on some shortcomings in Smith's arguments and endeavour to explain them as resulting from a particular interpretation of the aforesaid method. The peculiarity of Smith's interpretation was that he omitted the analysis and that he thought the synthesis reflects the composition of an object out of pre-existing elements which are endowed with ‘essential (...)
