Galileo Galilei is an Italian scientist, an astronomer, and a mathematician. The Renaissance is a time for “rebirth” in learning. This takes place after the Middle Ages, where in that time period, there was no interest in learning. Galileo accomplished, impacted, and reflected Renaissance ideals in his way of thinking. Galileo was an Italian scientist, an astronomer, and a mathematician from the Renaissance, whose many accomplishments impacted the world and reflected the great values of the Renaissance time period.
Galileo and his family were not so rich whatsoever, even though they had belonged to the nobility. Throughout his time in Pisa, he really matriculated as a student at the University of Pisa being so passionate in the arts. Unfortunately his father didn’t approve at all and instead wanted him to study medicine. Sadly his father, Vincenzo Galilei, died in 1591 making him the new head of the household. With all this going on in his life, he managed to move forward and later become the new chairman of mathematics in the Venetian Republic.
Controversy augmented when Nicolaus evolved the heliocentric theory, which was later included in Book I of De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium. A lot of people told Nicolaus that his findings were incorrect and irrelevant because they strongly believed in Claudius 's previous statement. Book I also sketches of the solar system that helps defend the heliocentric theory. An explanation of why we have season is mentioned as well. Book II deals with spherical astronomy, such as celestial coordinates and orbits (Armitage, 1990, pg.
(“Alexander Pope” Britannica school) “Before he was 17 Pope was admitted to London society and encouraged as a prodigy” (“Alexander Pope” Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia) His poem “An Essay on Criticism” was published in 1711. (“Alexander Pope” Britannica school) In 1717 he published “Elegy on the Death of an Unfortunate Lady” and “Eloisa to Abelard.” (“Alexander Pope” Hutchinson’s Biography Database) Alexander’s father died shortly after moving from Binfield to Chiswick in 1717. Because Alexander studied so much and didn't exercise, he developed a curved spine and some tubercular infection. His deformity kept him from much physical activity so he focused more on reading and writing. He had to deal with headaches all his life.
Few years later, Robert Fulton, stayed in PA, as a painter. At the age of twenty-three, he met Benjamin Franklin and got interested in engineering. Fulton wants someone to sponsor him to go to England. However, he wasn’t sponsor, so Robert decided to go to France to seek finical and constructional support. At, 1807, he made the first working
Galileo Galilei (Born February 15th, 1564 in Pisa, Italy Died January 8th, 1642) The scientific revolution was a period of time in Europe where there were many advances in science, math, and technology. This stretch of time also challenged thoughts and beliefs of countless people. During the scientific revolution there were multiple inquisitive explorers that had tremendous impact on the world. Throughout this duration of time I believe the most vital individual was Galileo Galilei. Galileo’s contributions were many and included his invention of the air thermometer, amplifying of the telescope, use of telescope to discover that the earth is not still and in fact how it revolves around the sun, and the law of falling bodies.
This allowed them to created hypotheses, which were the contrast to verify what was true or false. The new way of understanding the world lead to the field of exploration of the physical universe. All the new theories, from the work of Copernicus to the work of Galileo, and among others such as: Brahe and Kepler contribute to see the world contributed to the birth of modern philosophy. Capricornus, was the first philosopher to used mathematics to have a better picture of the universe, adding the new order of alignment of the planets according to their periods of rotation, adding
The Church disbelieved the more logical and mathematical method and views proposed by Copernicus, whose discoveries stated that the sun is the center of the universe and that the earth, other planets, and stars revolved around it. Although the Church resisted, his ideas continued and the actions of many scientists and mathematicians who followed him established the beginning for modern world, offered reasonable opinions, explained the theory of motion, discoverd by Isaac Newton, and the law of universal
Evangelista Torricelli was born in Faenza, Romagna, which is now Italy, on October 15, 1608 and died in Florence, Tuscany, which is also now Italy, on October 25, 1647. Torricelli’s education was not as easy as many other famous mathematicians because his parents were not fortunate enough to provide an education. Because his parents could not provide an education foe him, Torricelli was sent to move in with his uncle, Brother Jacopo, a camaldolese monk, in order to receive an education. In 1624, Torricelli entered a Jesuit College and studied philosophy and mathematics until 1626. Torricelli then showed his great talents to his uncle who later arranged for Torricelli to study with a camaldolese monk, Benedetto Castelli.
After a year of school, he transferred to Uppsala University, the best school in Sweden, in pursuit of a better course (Waggoner “Carl Linnaeus”). In 1732, Linnaeus was sent as a naturalist to Lapland through the university in search of potential substitutes for expensive imports due to bad trade and famines in Sweden (Moberg “The Life of Linnaeus”). Upon his return, he went to University of Harderwijk in Holland to finish his medical degree, since no graduate program was offered in Sweden (Waggoner “Carl Linnaeus”). Thanks to Linnaeus’s schooling, many future events were able to happen. Carolus Linnaeus’s early life and schooling was to thank for much of his lifetime work.
