The Scientific Revolution
Oscar S. 5TH PERIOD
Who were the people associated with the change?
Copernicus reasserted the Heliocentric model. He did serious work in astronomy instead of philosophy. His work led to many questions which becomes a central concern defining the scientific revolution.
Galileo based his scientific theories on actual experimentation. Galileo used his telescope to view the moon and other planets. He also agreed with Copernicus's view on the Heliocentric model. He would later be condemned by the church for his assertions.
Issac would go on to develop Calculus and Newtonian physics. The belief would spread that he had finally explained how the universe worked.
How did the change impact society at the time?
Questions were asked and were attempted to be answered. Advancement was at a near stagnating growth previously, and with the demand for books growing education started to flourish. As the process of copying books became more efficient and faster ideas started to spread faster. This newly formed Enlightenment led to leaps in the sciences. It also led to the Reformation as more and more people began questioning the corruption of the church.
