Description
The Ovary of Eve is a rich and often hilarious account of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century efforts to understand conception. In these early years of the Scientific Revolution, the most intelligent men and women of the day struggled to come to terms with the origins of new life, and one theory -- preformation -- sparked an intensely heated debate that continued for over one hundred years. Clara Pinto-Correia traces the history of this much maligned theory through the cultural capitals of Europe.
