How do the objects in a still life reflect the customs, ideas and aspirations of the time? This is one of the questions which Schneider asks in this book. Still lifes chart the history of scientific discoveries and their acceptance as well as the gradual replacement of the medieval concept of the world.
Translated from the German.
