The Scientific Revolution

Omar M. 6th period

What was the change?

The scientific revolution was the point in time when people began to explore the wonders of astronomy, mathematics, science, and philosophy. There were philosophes that dedicated their lives to explore and question the natural world around them. Eventually, people began to ponder whether what they were led to believe was true. Philosophers began to prove everything that they thought to be true, in fact false.

Who were the people associated with the change?

The scientific revolution started with Nicholas Copernicus ,Johannes Kepler,and Galileo Galilei and ended with Sir Issac Newton.


Newton

Isaac Newton is regarded as one of the most influential thinkers in the history of science. Newton made the three laws of universal gravitation, which transformed the structure of physical science. He combined of Copernicus, Keppler, Galileo, and Descartes. One of his major accomplishments was the invention of the reflecting telescope. This telescope was six inches long, magnified objects 40x, and eliminated color fringes. He discovered that sunlight is actually composed of all the colors of the rainbows and this light could be separated and recombined into white light

How did the change impact society at the time?

People were using logic for theories that could be proved, not just believed. This made a big impact on people, especially in respect to how they viewed religion.The church feared reason as an enemy of faith, but eventually began to embrace some of the achievements of the Scientific Revolution.

How is that change evidenced in today's modern society

people throughout began to expand their views on the true realities that surrounded them. The scientific method is a way to connect our observations and our experiments to result in an outcome that reveals the total truths.Technology is based on problems and solutions that we now a days must over come.
