Alexander Graham Bell He wrote a book in 1651 "Leviathan" He believed that people needed government to impose order. He argued that people in a society agree to give up freedoms to a strong leader in exchange for the peace,safety & order that government provide. Social Contract He believed that absolute monarchy was the best form of government because an absolute monarchy had power of a Leviathan a massive sea monster believed that people were happy,tolerant & reasonable He argued that all people were born equal with the natural rights of life, liberty, & property The purpose of government was to protect peoples natural rights He believed that monarchs were not chosen by God. He wrote a book called ' Two Treaties On Government" Locke believed that if government failed to protect its citizens natural rights Locke belief in government by consent for modern democracy Advocating equality of the sexes She asserted the innate rights of all people whom she thought victim's. Key Terms & People The Big Picture Among these new ways were processes & machines for raising crops, making cloths, and other jobs. These developments led to dramatic changes in industrial and the world of work. Because so much changed this era is called Industrial Revolution. Before: After: During the 1700's and 1800's, the industrial revolution changed practically everything about the world of work. Many of the changes were technological advances. As the rate of work were also advances increase, many others aspect of daily life besides work were also transformed.The assembly line was used in factories in urban cities. Industrial Revolution Jethro Tull invents the seed drill
Eli Whitney introduces the cotton gin
the thirteen colonies declare their independence
Richard Trevithick build the first steam locomotive
Marx & Engels publish the Communist Manifesto
Revolutions occur thought Europe
Trade union are legalized in Britain Scientific Revolution Key Terms & People Geocentric Theory
Scientific Revolution
Scientific Method
Rene Descartes
Nicolas Copernicus
Heliocentric Theory
Galileo Galilee
Isaac Newton New Discoveries Astronomy
Math Causes & Effects Scientific Revolution Causes:
Exploration & expansion of trade
Continuing study of ancient authorities
Development of the Scientific Method Effects:
Beginning of modern science
Belief in progress and the power of reason
New view of the universe as a well-ordered system 1564 - 1642
Galileo Galilee is considered by many to be the father of modern physics because of his willingness to replace old assumptions in favor of new scientifically deduced theories. He is famous for his celestial theories, and his works on mechanics paved the way for Newton.
1546 - 1601, 1571 - 1630
Tycho Brahe and Johannes Kepler. Brace's accurate celestial data allow Kepler to develop his theory of elliptical planetary motion and provide evidence for the Copernican system. In addition, Kepler writes a qualitative description of gravitation.
1642 - 1727
Sir Isaac Newton develops the laws of mechanics (now called classical mechanics) which explains object motion in a mathematical fashion.
1773 - 1829
Thomas Young develops the wave theory of light and describes light interference.
1791 - 1867
Michael Faraday creates the electric motor, and develops an understanding of electromagnetic induction, which provides evidence that electricity and magnetism are related. In addition, he discovers electrolysis and describes the conservation of energy law.
1799 - 1878
Joesph Henry's research on electromagnetic induction is performed at the same time as Faraday's. He constructs the first motor; his work with electromagnets leads directly to the development of the telegraph.
James Clerk Maxwell performs important research in three areas: color vision, molecular theory, and electromagnetic theory. The ideas underlying Maxwell theories of electromagnetism describes the propagation of light waves in a vacuum.
George Stoney develops a theory of the electron and estimates its mass.
Wilhelm Rontgen discovers x rays.
Marie and Pierre Curie separate radioactive elements.
Joseph Thompson measures the electron, and puts forth his "plum-pudding" model of the atom -- that the atom is a slightly positive sphere with small, raisin-like negative electrons inside. AGE
