【學者來訪】

Mordechai Feingold is Professor of History at California Institute of Technology (CalTech). He received his Doctor of Philosophy degree at the University of Oxford, and is specialized in the intellectual and institutional history of science and the history of higher education from the Renaissance to the eighteenth century. He is a world-leading authority on Isaac Newton. More broadly, he investigates how the rise of modern science has transformed Western culture from a humanistic, religious, and unified culture during the sixteenth century into a scientific, technological, secular, and fragmented one by the nineteenth century.

Feingold has authored four monographs, including Isaac Newton and the Origin of Civilization (Princeton University Press, 2013), written with Jed Buchwald; The Newtonian Moment: Isaac Newton and the Making of Modern Culture (Oxford University Press, 2004); and The Mathematicians' Apprenticeship: Science, Universities and Society in England, 1560–1640 (Cambridge University Press, 1984). He has edited eight volumes on the history of science and related subjects and written dozens of articles. he is the editor of the journal History of Universities (the most important journal on the history of higher education) and the co-editor and book review editor of the journal Perspectives on Science.

Since 2005, he has been the president of the International Commission for the History of Universities. He became Corresponding member of the International Academy for the History of Science in 2007.
