The Renaissance was a one of the best times in world history that made a big change in the world. A lot of people only know about few people that lived during the Renaissance for example Michael Angelo, William Shakespeare, and Leonardo de Vinci. Those are the names people recognize and know about the Renaissance because they are taught about at school but there are more people that did extraordinary things during the Renaissance and are not recognized in school. For example Michael Angelo is known for painting the Sistine Chapel in Rome. Leonardo is known for a lot of stuff because his stuff help contribute to modern day art, science, and math.
“Besides being a skillful artist, Leonardo was also known as a remarkable inventor, and a brilliant scientist. Leonardo designed a myriad of inventions, although few of these designs were constructed in his lifetime. In his later years, he devoted a substantial amount of time to carefully constructed notebooks filled with scientific notations and compelling sketches, all meticulously inscribed backwards (starting at the right side of the page and moving to the left), so that they can only be read with the aid of a mirror. Leonardo was left-handed, so mirror writing came easily and naturally to him. Some say that although unusual, this mirror writing is a trait shared by many left-handed dyslexic people,” says studyenglishtoday.net.
Leonardo da Vinci Leonardo da Vinci was a famous artist and scholar, during the Italian Renaissance. Da Vinci is best known for his painting, the Mona Lisa. Da Vinci was a famous Italian painter, sculptor, engineer, inventor, architect, and a studier of all things scientific. Leonardo da Vinci was self-educated. While he is mostly recognized as an artist, there are many other areas he excelled in, making him the perfect example of a “Renaissance Man.”
Isaac Newton was known to be a great English scientist and mathematician. With his involvement in the science and mathematics field he was able to help us on future problems. with his new ideas we were able to improve in knowledge. Isaac Newton was born on December 25, 1642 in Woolsthorpe England and died on March 20, 1727 in Kensington, England. He was born a premature infant so small and sickly that no one thought he would survive(Isaac Newton).
One way he was motivated is he didn 't let not knowing how to read or not going to school for no more than A week to two weeks stop him from being one of the greatest black mathematicians. Banneker also gained fame from the many different ways he contributed to math. Some of Benjamin Banneker 's contributions to math include how to better study the stars to make predictions and calculations about events such as solar eclipses. When Benjamin Banneker successfully predicted a solar eclipse in 1789, he surprised the fields of mathematics and astronomy with his accuracy. He also applied his mathematical skill to survey Washington, D.C., helping to shape the
It was not until Mill’s late teens that he began to study Jeremy Bentham and his utilitarianism theory. “Reading Bentham satisfied Mill’s cravings for scientific precision and gave him a new way of looking at social intercourse” (Buchholz 97). Mill became so intrigued with Bentham that he decided to preach the Benthamite gospel in the Westminster Review, a publication started by his father and Jeremy Bentham. Mill’s views soon changed as he grew older. It is said that Mill had a mid-life crisis at the age of twenty because he took the Bentamite precision too far and actually forgot the ultimate goal of Utilitarianism in the first place, happiness.
a. Trade and the advancement of technology both motivated and provided the means to the colonization and exploration across the seas. First, trading throughout Europe demonstrated a very profitable means of income for every nation, but the slow travel routes motivated the exploration of a new path to the desired destination. Trading had also provided the means of colonization because of the motivated exploration of new land. The development and advancement of new technologies had encouraged exploration because of the desire to demonstrate and test the new technologies such as the compass and gunpowder. The use of gunpowder had consequently improved the desire to trade as well.
In the early civilizations , government, economy, and the art culture was growing for developing countries. The Tigris and Euphrates River Valley was very similar and different from the famous Nile river valley in Egypt in many ways. Waging wars and causing trouble in paradise are not the only things that the Middle East is and was capable of. These two civilizations built the structure of autocracy, monarchy, and the artistic community, from hieroglyphics to pictographs these communities of people created things that we still use today to find out more of ancient history. The Persian chart by Ms.Dumelow’s 9th grade class explains the exact differences between the two river valleys The Nile River Valley and The Tigris Euphrates river valley.
I am Frederik Pedersen a student of the London School of Economics and Political Science and I have a question for you. I want to ask you, the listener if you think immigration is good for Britain. Surely, you must have thought about this once through all the commotion in the media, about mass immigration from the war in the Middle East. Everyone have an opinion on this and many of them are probably very good opinions
Leibniz was born in Leipzig, Germany on July 1st, 1646. His parents were prominent as his father was a moral professor at the city college however; he passed when Leibniz was only six years old. His mother was the daughter of a reputable attorney. Leibniz was a childhood phenomenon as he exceled in many fields in his time. He learned to speak Latin and Greek on his own by reading inscriptions of illustrated books and comparing them to German types in his father’s library.
This was mainly why he was so reluctant to publish his whole findings. Unlike Galileo, however, Copernicus was born Prussian in the early stages of the Renaissance in 1473. He was educated at the insisting of his uncle Lucas Watzenrode, and in one case put into a school in Krakow specializing in astronomy and mathematics. Copernicus traveled to Italy, homeplace of Galileo, for academics as well. At the end of his life, Copernicus settled down in Warmia but also took part in many political affairs.
In 1679, Newton 's mother died which caused him to become extremely isolated for six months; he used this time to study gravity. Although Newton is best known for his work on gravity he also had many physical inventions. He is also known for the invention of calculus as well as another mathematician who they say invented it at the same time. Later on, he then published a book titled Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica which is considered to be one of the most influential books in the history of science today. Newton was elected president of Royal Society after the death of Robert Hookes in 170 3.
Cosimo de Medici was a very important figure during the 1400s. One of the main reasons for that was that he was the founder for one of the main lines of the Medici family that had ruled over florence from 1434 to 1537. He really began to rise in power after he inherited the medici bank from his father, Giovanni de' Medici, who had originally founded the medici bank in 1397. After inheriting the bank, Cosimo went and expanded the bank, making it the largest and most respected bank in
The trans-Atlantic was an elaborate coastal trade route through which the colonies sold goods to one another, linking the North American colonies to England, continental Europe, and the West coast of Africa through the exchange of slaves, raw materials, and manufactured goods. One of the main impacts this Triangle Trade had was on the laboring systems of the new colonies which left some systems to their original plans of , while new ideas were also introduced. The trans-Atlantic route created opportunities in British North America from 1600-1763 that allowed colonies to maintain their original intentions of working to search for resources for Europe, while also opening many new doors which allowed growth in both labor and trade procedures in all parts of
From 1450 to 1700 the economy of Europe began to majorly change. Mercantilism was on the uprise which meant Europe began to focus more on their trade and commerce. This lead to many individuals to having a hard time gaining wealth because the government was doing everthing on a large scale. Many Europeans were just barely getting by. Then the poor would have to go to the extremes and beg and steal to make money for themselves.
