Scientific Revolution

Mackenzie K. 5th period

What was the change?

The scientific revolution made a new view of science and nature emerge. It was a reeducation of common sense, substitution of a quantitative for a qualitative view of nature, view of nature as a machine, and acceptance of new criteria. Science became a very important aspect and created new views on natural sciences, physics, and chemistry.

Who were the people associated with the change?

How did the change impact society at the time?

This changed society because perspectives widened and new ideas were formed. Science was now placed more prominently on society and scientific facts became world wide knowledge. Natural science, physics, and chemistry became very important aspects in what we now know today. These sciences helped bring together the pieces of the universe and the facts that everyone wondered before now.

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

Science is now more respected because of this revolution. It's a requirement in schools and is now a crucial part of education. Without science, we would not know the facts of life and the way the world works. We have evolved into a society of learning and disbelief in how the world works.
