How do politics and science interact at the urban level?
How do politics and science interact at the urban level? It is widely agreed that urbanization played a key role in the development of early modern economy, and that it also contributed to the circulation and production of knowledge in the scientific revolution. Yet historians tend to consider urbanization as an organic process with little consideration of urban policy as a key component of development. My contribution investigates how key players in urban politics (burgomasters, mayors and other politicians) considered science and technology as tools for developing their cities. While there is an abundant historiography on the scientific policies of early modern states, we still know very little of how urban policies were influenced by contemporary technoscience.
