“[Sprat’s] exposition of the conception and beginning of the Royal Society remains the only one which tells us, in any detail, not only what the founders were doing, but even more important, what they thought they were doing” – Purver, The Royal Society: Concept and Creation, p. 9)

 

Thomas Sprat’s landmark work was divided into three distinct parts. The first, a discussion of natural philosophies of ancient cultures, the second includes examples of the scientific work the Royal Society members were doing. The third part contains “A defense and recommendation of Experimental Knowledge in General,” which was a response to experimental philosophies and political predications at the time. This part contains contributions by Robert Hooke, one entitled “An account of a dog dissection.”
