Reviews
"Every future study of Helmholtz and the conservation of energy will have to contend with what Caneva has so carefully, so thoroughly, and so magnificently present[ed] as the 'contexts of creation and reception' of Helmholtz's pathbreaking essay on the Erhaltung der Kraft. A landmark study based on a close reading of primary sources and filled with insights and acumen, Caneva's book is a masterpiece."
--Annals of Science

"Caneva's impressively detailed piece of scholarship is undoubtedly a landmark contribution."
