Description
In this first detailed scientific biography of Heinrich Hertz, Jed Z. Buchwald examines Hertz's work on electromagnetic waves in the context of the social and intellectual world of nineteenth-century German physics. By situating Hertz's work within the larger scientific community of his day, Buchwald demonstrates how the shared, unwritten assumptions, values, and understandings of scientific practice can be recovered.
