WHAT IS THE SCIENTIFIC REVOLUTION ?

The Scientific Revolution in early modern European history brought about a big shift in the way that scientists described the universe and the place of the earth we live on. Discoveries in astronomy, mathematics and physics contributed to this shift in worldview and led to conflicts with long-held beliefs, both scientific and religious.


WHAT WAS THE BIG CHANGE ?

Big changes in Science like Copernicus theories about the earth and how the sun, and not the earth are the center of our solar system were posited. This is important because it went against the traditional teaching that the church. Socrates/Plato held the Earth and it was basically the center of the universe. Galileo followed up on this idea too, and was branded a heretic.


IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN THE SCIENTIFIC REVOLUTION


  1. Kepler - discovered the Laws of Planetary motion.
  2. Galileo - Proved Copernicus' theory of a heliocentric Solar System, and built the first powerful telescopes.
  3. Isaac Newton - Law of Gravity,Laws of Motion and other work that is the basis of modern physics.



Isaac Newton

He showed the way gravity worked on Earth and in the way it kept the planets in their orbits. He also made rules and they were know as "The Newtons Laws".


HOW DID THE CHANGE IMPACT SOCIETY AT THAT TIME ?

The change impacted the society in 2 different ways.


2. Religiously -Scientist theories started to go against the christian religion and against the scriptures in the holy bible.


3. Economically - Scientific revolution was the industrial revolution which stimulated European economy in a very large way - - leading to the world domination by the European nations by 1900.


It changed the way people thought about the universe, the use of the Scientific Method resulted in discoveries in medicine, physics, and biology.

HOW DID THE SCIENTIFIC REVOLUTION CHANGE IN TODAY'S SOCIETY
