Technological and Scientific Advances 7-1.2 Explain how technological and scientific advances,
including navigational advances and the use of gunpowder,
affected various parts of the world politically, socially,
and economically and contributed to the power of
European nations.
Much of the political, military, and
economic domination of the European
nations during the 17th and 18th century
was due to the scientific and technological
innovations spearheaded by these nations.
improved mapmaking and
navigational advances
such as the compass and the astrolabe improved the Europeans’ ability to navigate the open waters
thereby allowing them to dominate...
Travel Trade and Naval
operations ...among the continents European use of gunpowder allowed them to build superior weapons which they used to conquer and
enslave people in other lands without even needing a huge army to do it! as Europeans expanded their reach through these advantages,
it allowed them to spread European
ideas, beliefs and models, and dominate the world... Economically Culturally and politically Economically, this dominance centered
on the philosophy of mercantilism and
the development of economic enterprises
to benefit Europe (such as plantation
systems).
Culturally, European influence
was seen in the spread of
Christianity (both forced and
voluntary), and the adoption
of western ideals such as
private property.
Politically, the subjugated lands generally either came under the
direct rule of Europeans (i.e. viceroyalties in Spanish colonies) and/or were colonized, with the colonists establishing European-style governments. The European political
systems (which varied by nation) thereby came to dominate, either directly or indirectly, these lands and served as the basis of political systems in these regions.
