This book presents several new ideas in the history and philosophy of science.  Against the backdrop of the major events of William Harvey's times, the author provides new insights into Harvey's discovery of the blood's circulation.  A major theme is how Harvey and other scientists based their work on the concept that God created the universe purposefully.  The author also develops a new, historically-based pattern of scientific discovery and advance.
