Background to the Revolution

These scientist mainly relied on Aristotle for their
New instruments such as the telescope and
  microscope, made new scientific discoveries
  possible. The printing press helped spread
  these new ideas quickly and easily.
A Revolution in Astronomy
   Discoveries in astronomy were an important
    part of the Scientific Revolution.
   During the Middle Ages, philosophers had
    created a model of the universe known as the
    Ptolemaic system.
   This system is called the geocentric because it
    places Earth at the center of the universe.
   Copernicus believed in a heliocentric or sun-
    centered model of the universe. The Sun, not
    Earth, was at the center.
Astronomy Continue
   Johannes Kepler, used detailed astronomical
    data to create laws of planetary motion. He
    discovered that the orbits of the planets around
    the Sun were not circular, as Copernicus had
    thought. Instead, the orbits were elliptical or
   Johannes Kepler also developed planetary
Galileo Galilei
   Was the first European to make regular
    observations of the heavens with a telescope.
   His observation suggested that planets had
   Isaac Newton: is considered the greatest
    genius of the Scientific Revolution. He was
    able to define many laws of motions.
   The universal law of gravitation: law of
Medicine and Chemistry
   A revolution in medicine began in the 16c.
   Andreas Vesalius presented a careful and
    accurate examination of the human organs and
    the general structure of the human body.
Women and the Origins of Science
   Women as well as men were involved in the
    Scientific Revolution.
   Margaret Cavendish was one of the most
    prominent female scientists of the 17c.
   Maria Winklemann, a Germany astronomers
    who was very famous.
Descartes and Reason
   The Scientific Revolution strongly influenced
    the Western view of man.
   Rene Descarte believed in one absolute truth,
    his own existence.
   Descarte has been called the father of modern
    rationalism, the belief that reason is the chief
    source of knowledge.
The Scientific Method
   The scientific method is a systematic
    procedure for collecting and analyzing
    evidence. It had nothing to do with ancient
   Francis Bacon developed the scientific method,
    he was also a mathematician.
   Instead of ancient authorities, scientists should
    use inductive reasoning to learn about nature.

What did Margaret Cavendish and
Maria Winkelmann contribute to the
Scientific Revolution

What is the significance of
Descartes’s principle of the
separation of the mind and matter?
   It allowed scientists to view matter as dead or
    inert, something totally detached from
    themselves that could be investigated
    independently by reason
What are the characteristic of the
Scientific method?
   It is a systematic procedure for collecting and
    analyzing evidence. Scientists should proceed
    from the particular to the general. Systematic
    observations and carefully organized
    experiments to test hypotheses will lead to
    correct general principle.
