World History: Enlightenment Smore

By: Jake Frederick And Tyler Phillips

The Main Ideas Of The Enlightment:

Rationalism: The logical reasoning based on facts.

Secularism: The belief that religion should not okay a role in gov, education or public parts of society.

Scientific Method: A method of procedure consisting of elements like systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypothesis.

Tolerance: The ability to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions that one does not necessarily agree with.

Freedom: The power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.

Penal Reforms: Prison reform is the attempt to improve conditions inside prisons, aiming at a more effective penal system.

Isaac Newton:

He was born in 1642, and didn't really accomplish anything until he went to the University of Cambridge, where he later became a professor, and wrote one of his most famous works, "Mathmatical Principles of Natural Philosophy". He also founded the three laws of motion and the universal law of gravitation. This law explains why planets don't just drift out into space.

Science During the Enlightenment

Science during the enlightenment was one of the most amazing discoveries in history due to the lack of technology, and the fact that so few people were able to find sutras laws of nature. Isaac Newton was one of the major discoverers in the late 1600's. Finding the three laws of motion, the universal law of gravitation, Newton became well known across the world, and is now one of the most famous people in history. Also, thanks to Galileo, we knew that the planets removed around the sun, and no the other way around, which at the time was a major belief.
