The Scientific Revolution

By: Naomi Chavez-Medina

What was the Scientific Revolution?

The Scientific Revolution was a new emphasis by intellectuals on the "study of humanity". It occurred at the same time as the Renaissance and Reformation in Europe.The people began to have questions about the universe and nature and began to accept theories, opposed to the traditional religious emphasis. Furthermore, it was a new way of thinking about the natural world that challenged traditional views and instead relied upon experimentation.


Who were the people associated with the change?

How did the change impact society at the time?

The Scientific Revolution was fundamental change that helped in the direction of western thought and scientific practice (The scientific method). It brought about a fundamental change in the way laws of nature were investigated.This led people to question the church; inspired great artistic achievements; led to new ideas about government, religion, education and economics.

How is that change evidenced in today's day modern society?

The scientific revolution and the use of calculus resulted in a new methodology. These new methodologies eventually provided the mechanism for the development of more recent theories and relativity theory that have essentially superseded classical physics. This new discoveries allowed see the solar system, stars, planets, comets and other objects in space, in the modern day.Also one of the theories that we use in this days is the scientific method and of course of the telescope. In conclusion,the use of all of this theories helps to contribute for more new scientific discoveries.
