A History of Geology

A History of Geology

Gohau looks at the early theories of the formation of the world and then moves to philosophical debates over mountains, fossils, the Flood, volcanoes, and cycles of earth history that preoccupied the geologists and biologists of the late 18th and 19th century. He concludes with an account of 20th century geology's scientific revolution. Revised and translated from the French (Editions La Decouverte, 1987).
