The Industrial Revolution--A Brief Description

      The industrial revolution occurred during this past sensate period.  The industrial revolution was fueled by the objectification of nature brought about by the works of Bacon, Descartes, and Newton (Berman, 1984).  By objectifying nature, it was more easily reduced, examined, and manipulated to serve "man's" needs (the industrial revolution served primarily a patriarchal society).  The result was an explosion of technological advances that allowed for both an increase in creature comforts for living and an increasing ability to reduce, examine, and manipulate nature.
