Geology, according to most histories of the field, emerged as a separate scientific specialty in early nineteenth-century Britain, where its practitioners attempted to understand the development of the earth's crust and to free geology from the Biblical account of creation. In From Mineralogy to Geology, Rachel Laudan presents a challenging alternative view. By examining earlier scientific traditions in continental Europe, she traces the intellectual roots of geology to mineralogy and chemical cosmogony.
