Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful book that provides rare insight into the developments of early modern science. It specifically elucidates the role of Platonic metaphysics and ontology in the thought of Galileo. This revolution ushered in an era of the recovery of mathematical investigation of the physical world, by refuting the by then, exhausted Aristotelian scholarship that had laboured over 18 centuries, in investigating nature. This book is truly wonderful because it sets the record straight by providing a historical reconstruction of the experiments (real and thought) conducted by Galileo, into the examination of nature. It also provides great insight on the role of other figures in that period, including Gassendi and Pascal, as well as other lesser figures Merserne, Beneddeti, Ricciolli and Roberval.
