Das Buch von Dijksterhuis erschien in deutscher Sprache erstmals 1956. Der Autor gibt einen umfassenden Überblick über die Geschichte der Naturwissenschaften vom Altertum über das Mittelalter bis zu der Geburt der klassischen Naturwissenschaft. Neben den eigentlichen naturwissenschaftlichen Fragestellungen finden auch philosophische und geisteswissenschaftliche Aspekte der behandelten Zeitabschnitte Berücksichtigung. Professor Dr. Heinz Maier-Leibnitz schreibt in seinem Geleitwort: "Aber wenn uns die Wissenschaftsgeschichte helfen soll, dann darf sie nicht auf denselben modischen Bahnen wandeln wie die meisten, die heute über Wissenschaft schreiben. Deshalb freue ich mich, daß das Buch von Dijksterhuis wieder aufgelegt wird. Er ist nicht modisch. Ganz sorgfältig dringt er in das Denken früherer Jahrhunderte ein. Wer ihm folgt, und es ist ein Vergnügen, ihm zu folgen, wird viel für sein Denken profitieren."
