How The Change Impact Society At The Time

The change had a deep social impact by changing the world and the way of life through the development of the new technologies and shaping a new social order.


How the change evidenced in today's modern society

It is generally thought to have begun with a book "On the revolution of the heavenly spheres" by Nicolaus Copernicus in 1543. This book postulated that the earth was not the center of the universe. It was such a striking change from past beliefs that it made many realize that not everything there was to know had yet been learned. This was made abundantly clear by discoveries in the new world, pioneered by Christopher Columbus, which showed that even on Earth there were vast unknowns.
