About the author (1994)

James L. Larson is Professor Emeritus of Scandinavian Languages at the University of California, Berkeley. His research focuses on the languages, literature, and history of northern Europe, with an emphasis on early modern history and culture. His interests in science, religion, and culture are unified by a concern with the process of secularization in Western culture. Larson has published several books, including Reason and Experience, a study of Linnaean classification; Interpreting Nature: The Science of Living Form from Linnaeus to Kant, a history of eighteenth-century life sciences; and Renaissance of the Goths, a translation of a study of the last Catholic archbishops of Sweden in the sixteenth century. He has also published papers in Eighteenth-Century Studies, Isis, Janus, the Journal of the History of Biology, the Journal of the History of Ideas, Scandinavian Studies, and Scandinavica.
