Yeah, early modern, at least for Europe, is basically everything in the mid-to-late 1500s to the early 1700s. At least, that's how I understood it, though admittedly I only took the one class that covered the magical and scientific beliefs, trends, and advancements of those times.

It was a pseudoscience because it's basically the same sort of new age nonsense and the organic craze we saw in the 70s and are seeing again today with alternative medicine and anti-vaxxers, plus the resurgence of the organic hype and now gluten-free and free range insanity. Fiorovanti might have been one of the first to actually employ alchemy as a pseudoscientific product, though, yes.

I guess the problem here for me is I should google when the post modern period to make a more educated reply. Be back in a second...

So my magical internet machine says 16th to 19th century roughly, so basically all before and during Newtons life. I guess before Newton, very few people, if any, actually tried to scrutinize alchemy. I don't really know, but I guess there isn't enough foundation to justify it as science.

Carry on then. Good luck with this other guy over here. Don't let him get to you, he's just hating for the sake of hatred.

In the early modern period it basically became a pseudoscience. You had motherfuckers selling miracle cures and books on how to use them effectively in the 16th century. There was one guy I wrote a paper about, Leonardo Fiorovanti, who was like Venetian Doctor Oz. It was wild shit.

Well I only know Newton experimented heavily with it, but there are plenty of things around today that people cash in on. I don't think that's inherently a flaw with alchemy and more a flaw with capitalism.

Anyway, carry on with your studies.
