Science Saturday: Geology
Today we present The Story of the Rocks: Fourteen Weeks in Popular Geology by Joel Dorman Steele, published in 1877 by the American Book Company and the press of A. S. Barnes & Co., both companies known for publishing educational textbooks. The Story of the Rocks is part of Steele’s “Fourteen Weeks Series in Natural Science,” covering chemistry, physics, zoology, astronomy, and even a book titled Hygienic Physiology, Alcoholic Drinks and Narcotics.
Joel Dorman Steele (1836-1886) was an American educator who wrote many books in collaboration with his wife Esther Baker Steele, in a wide array of subjects pertaining to history and science.
Joel references his experiences with teaching students in his book and advises other teachers to make use of their local paleontology when instructing their students, arguing that people learn best when they can associate what they are learning with physical objects.
He wrote that the goals for his books were:
“To make science interesting by omitting the minutiae which are of value only to the scientific man, and by presenting alone those points of general importance with which every well-informed person wishes to become acquainted. The thing is of more value than a name. A pleasant fact will be recollected long after an unpronounceable term has been forgotten. Therefore, only enough geologic nomenclature is used to make the study systematic, to awaken a love for the order of nature, and to afford a plan around which other knowledge may crystallize.”
It is also notable that there are many references to God and Christianity in the book, which goes along with the principles of natural theology, a popular concept during the rise of modern science. One of the main principles of natural theology is that studying nature is a religious endeavor since the natural world was considered to be God’s creation.
