Summary
A study of the relationship of science and theater during the long eighteenth century in Britain, 'The Theater of Experiment' explores crucial role of spectacle in the establishment of modern science by analyzing how eighteenth-century science was 'staged' in a double sense. On the one hand, this study analyzes science in performance: the way that science and scientists were made a public spectacle in comedies, farces, and pantomimes for purposes that could range from the satiric to the pedagogic to the hagiographic. But this book also considers the way in which these plays laid bare science as performance-that is, the ways in which eighteenth-century science was itself a kind of performing art, subject to regimes of stagecraft that reverberated across the laboratory, lecture hall, anatomy theater, and public stage
