Who are the people associated with the change?

How did the change impact society at the time?

These changes in attitude toward knowledge and what it was for went hand in hand with revelations emerging from the rediscovery of ancient wisdom.The increased concern with the practical utility of knowledge of the Renaissance humanists ensured that practitioners of occult arts, like alchemy, astrology, sympathetic magic, and what was called "mathematical magic" The new views on expanding knowledge ultimately brought society out of the Dark Ages. The emerging of new ideas and scientists erupted society to begin inventing again. Society at this time began to become more interested in human thought processes, mathematics, sciences, and questioning why and how things are the way they are.

How is that change evident in today's modern society?

If it weren't for these great scientists, we wouldn't have today's modern telescopes. Although the original telescope that Galileo invented wasn't as complex as today's telescopes, if it weren't for him we wouldn't have his telescope to expand on. Additionally, Newton's laws are still used throughout schools today and are taught in physics classes. Also, it is now universally known that our solar system is heliocentric, thanks to Copernicus. All of these great scientist and inventors contributed to modern society a great deal.
