In the nineteenth century, scientific practice underwent a dramatic transformation from personal endeavor to business enterprise. In "Spectrum of Belief", Myles Jackson explores this transformation through a sociocultural history of the rise of precision optics in Germany. He uses the career of the optician Joseph von Fraunhofer (1787-1826) to probe the relationship between science and society, and between artisans and experimental natural philosophers, during this important transition.
