Transcript of Galileo Galilei
- (1586) La Billancetta (The Little Balance) - (1638) Discourses and Mathematical Demonstrations Relating to Two New Sciences - (1632) Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems - (1590) On Motion - (1612) Discourse on Floating Bodies - (1610) The Starry Messenger - (ca. 1600) Mechanics During Galileo's time, the works of other distinguished minds such as German mathematician and astronomer Johannes Keppler and Italian philosopher Giordano Bruno were significant influences on Galileo's explorations But perhaps his most notable contribution to mathematics was his paradox which demonstrates the mapping of sets of numbers Galileo's paradox proposes that in the assigned mapping of two sets you will not run out of elements from one set before running out of elements from other Resources http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/224058/Galileo
http://www.westerncultureglobal.org/galileo.html Consequently, he was accused of heresy by some of the Church’s clergymen but was eventually relieved of all charges and prohibited from teaching Copernican theory Challenges Early Life Mathematics Science Though he was religious, Galileo did not agree with the strict assumption that the bible must be taken literally, while a significant amount of his work contradicted the ideas of the church Under threat of persecution, Galileo made a public confession the his statement about the Earth moving around the Sun was wrong, and was then put on house arrest until his death in January 1642 Later however, the Pope ordered Galileo to appear before the Roman Inquisition after banning the scientist’s publication “Dialogue on the Two Great Systems of the World” which supported the Copernican system His establishment of the law of falling bodies and law of projectiles enabled other mathematicians and scientists such as Isaac Newton to later discovered the laws of motion Though Galileo is notably recognized as a famous astronomer, he pioneered a legacy of innovation in the field physics
Legacy Conclusively, his devotion to solving complex mathematic systems against an authoritative directive, inspired others like Albert Einstein to pursue their own scientific aspirations His data and rational analysis of gravitational principles also lead to greater ingenuity in the studies of rationality and quantum mechanics In the course of this time period, beginning around 1540, technological advancements gave way to the Scientific Revolution The revolution began the spread of unprecedented and groundbreaking ideas and experimentation in the disciplines of motion, physics, astronomy, and philosophy Other philosophers including Sir Francis Bacon also contributed their methods of reasoning and understanding to help establish the Scientific Method, which has allowed scientists throughout history to organize their observations in a more accurate and cohesive way
