Scientific Revolution


What was the change?

It change the way people thought about the physical world around them. The same spirt of inquiry that fuels the renaissance, led scientist to question traditional beliefs about the working of the universe. Physical was founded in the mid-19th century as synthesis of several older sciences. Synthesis was based on a large part of the recognition that the different forces of nature are related. The boundary between physics and chemistry is somewhat arbitrary. Astronomy is the science of the entire universe beyond the earth. Until the 18 century astronomers were worried about the Sun, Moon, planets, and comets. They began to study about the space and later they became more intimately linked thought cosmological theories.

Who were the people associated with the change?

How did the change impact society at the time?

The Greeks did not only make substantial progress but also went beyond their predecessors in knowledge of the human body. Pre-Greek medicine was confined to their religion. In the 15th century B.C. a revolutionary change came about with the name of Hippocrates. Hippocrates and his school was influenced by the rise of natural philosophy. They first insisted that disease was a natural, not a supernatural, phenomenon. even maladies as striking as epilepsy, whose seizures appeared to be divinely caused, were held to originate in natural causes within your body.

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

Medicine is field of applied science related to the art of healing by diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of the disease. Medicine has changed since the Scientific Revolution. They now test things that are like us to see if it work before giving it to us. As if it were still in the Scientific Revolution they would just give it to us not know what it could do to us. Doctors now days go threw your medicine chart and see what kind of medicine your on or have been on and then they go from their. Meaning they see what they need to do and see what medicine they can give you. I also think that medicine is stronger and work better than in the Scientific Revolution.
