Books
Review: Set against the backdrop of the witchcraft trial of his mother, Kepler's Witch brings to life the tidal forces of the Reformation and Counter-Reformation, submerging us into these turbulent times, revealing not only the surprisingly spiritual nature of early modern science, but Kepler's role as a neglected hero of conscience.
