Scientific Revolution

The scientific revolution was the emergence of modern science during the early modern period, when developments in mathematics, physics, astronomy, biology, medicine, and chemistry transformed views of society and nature.

What was the change?

The Scientific Revolution changed the way people thought about the physical world around them. The same spirit of inquiry that fueled the Renaissance, led scientists to question traditional beliefs about the workings of the universe. The most prominent scientists of this time include, Copernicus, Galileo, and Isaac Newton.

Who were the people associated with the scientific revolution?

How did the change impact society at the time?

Enlightenment ideas helped to stimulate people's sense of individualism, and the basic belief in equal rights . This in turn led to the Glorious Revolution in Britain, the American Revolution, the French Revolution , and the Latin American Revolution. Some of these revolutions resulted in government based upon the ideas of the Enlightenment such as, Great Britain and the United States.
