TEST ON SCIENTIFIC AWAKENING = MON., 03/04


What was the conventional wisdom and how did each of the scientists challenge or refute?
Idents--for each person, know his contribution and its significance:

PEOPLE IDEAS
Copernicus Heliocentric universe, moving earth (rotates and revolves)
Kepler theories of celestial motion, elliptical orbits (3 laws)
Galileo composition of celestial bodies, theories of terrestrial motion
Newton Universal Law of Gravitation, universe is an orderly place
Bacon Rationalism, scientific methodology, use reason
Descartes Mechanistic view of universe

Other people played a role in the Scientific Awakening in
fields other than mechanics (physics) and astronomy.
Take note of: the important women;
read thoroughly/carefully the Spielvogel/Kagan/Stearns handouts (esp. women in science);
consider the breakthroughs in medicine

Topics to Consider:

1. Consider the differences between the view of the universe described by Ptolemy and that of Copernicus/Galileo;
what was the impact of each view on the place of man and the importance of traditional religion?
2. Note the role of technology and mathematics in the Scientific Awakening.
3. How does the story of medicine/anatomy parallel that of astronomy?

4. What do you imagine or suspect will be the impact of the Scientific Awakening on European society?
consider that Copernicus and Luther are exact contemporaries.
5. Take note of how the Scientific Awakening led to a change in Europeans' world view.
