Copernicus: Philosophy and Science: Bruno-Kepler-Galileo
Stillman Drake (au)
The year 1973 marked the 500th anniversary of the birth of Nicolas Copernicus, the man to whom the world owes the most far-reaching of all its intellectual revolutions. That revolution, which led to the emergence of modern physical science in the work of Isaac Newton, really began with the year of the death of Copernicus & the publication at Nurnberg in 1543 of his great book “De revolutionibus orbium coelestium,” “On the revolutions of the heavenly orbs.” This volume, issued in 1973, shows how the great scientists Bruno, Kepler & Galileo each regarded himself primarily as a Copernican, & made “De revolutionibus” the prime symbol of true intellectual revolutions in philosophy, astronomy & physics. Black & white illustrations.
