Newton cont.
  • He formulated a set of mathematical principles to
    explain motion
  • Law of universal gravitation- everybody in the
    universe attracts every other body in the
    universe in a precise mathematical relationship

Johannes Kepler
  • Brahes assistant
  • elliptical orbits of the planets around the sun
  • Planets do not move at a uniform speed in their
    orbits
  • The time of a complete orbit is directly related
    to the planets distance from the sun

11
Francis Bacon
  • Argued that new knowledge had to be obtained
    through empirical, experimental research
  • Empiricism- inductive reasoning

en.wikipedia.org
12
Rene Descartes
  • Believed that only things that can be proven by
    reason are real
  • Deductive reasoning
  • Cartesian dualism- matter and mind (physical
    and spiritual)

Impact on Society
  • A new and expanding social group- the
    international scientific community
  • Expansion of knowledge
  • New ways of obtaining knowledge (scientific
    method)

14
Impact on Religion
  • Conflicts with religious beliefs
  • Before Science was interpreted by Christian
    theologians, human beings at the center of the
    universe
  • After Science was a branch of philosophy and not
    theology, Sun is the center of universe
  • Church did not like the idea that science was
    beginning to take over the way people think and
    believe. Losing faith

15
Impact on Economy
  • Improvements in technology facilitated overseas
    trade and helped supplement leading merchants
  • Had some impact on the living standards of the
    masses (in the late 18th century)
