Professor Kremer teaches courses in the history of science, medicine and technology. He earned his PhD in History of Science from Harvard and specializes in European science from the fifteenth through the nineteenth centuries. His books include The Thermodynamics of Life and Experimental Physiology (Garland 1990), a study of experiment in nineteenth-century medicine; Letters of Hermann von Helmholtz to His Wife, 1849-1859 (Steiner 1990), an edition of early letters by a leading German physicist and cultural icon; and The Practice of Alfonsine Astronomy in the Fifteenth Century (forthcoming), an analysis of early printed almanacs. Kremer's current research examines responses to Copernican astronomy in astrological calendars printed between 1543-1630. His work has been supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, National Science Foundation, Humboldt Foundation, and the Howard Foundation.
