They proved that progression in this field of study can have vast as well as monumental improvements in contemporary science and technology. Eugenics and Frankenstein both included advanced ways of thinking and study. However, with advancement, setbacks can also follow. In both cases, the development of the ideas of Eugenics and creation of Frankenstein’s monster were thought to be ideas that would revolutionize scientific thinking and bring the ability to even further the scientific field of study. This statement was proven to be precise.
Nebil Berhanu DBQ The statement that, “The philosophers of the Enlightenment stood on the shoulders of the men of the Scientific Revolution.” is quite accurate. This is because many of the beliefs that the philosophers held about science and nature were shared with the beliefs during the Scientific Revolution. The Scientific Revolution marked a shift away from religion and superstition and towards logic. It was this belief in logic that was the cornerstone of Enlightenment Era beliefs. As we see in this segment of Document 6 “Reason is in the estimation of the philosopher what grace is to the Christian.
There was important documents that helped the influence of The Enlightenment. The Principia was written by Sir Isaac Newton, and it used mathematics to explain the governing of the universe. It also explain the laws of motion. The document was written in 1687. Opticks was written by Sir Isaac Newton as well, in 1704 which he explain the meaning of experimentalism.
Ronaldo Pintado 10/26/13 Period 1 A.P European History The Scientific Revolution was a very important period in history that established new ideas in science and new views on the universe. This revolution didn’t just start in the 16th and 17th century. This went back as early as the Middle Ages. The reason is because as well as new ideas and discoveries were made, philosophers were also reexamining and revising old theories and data from the late Middle Ages and contributing it in their own work. During this revolution, there were many great philosophers who made incredible contributions to science and changed the way people look at the world around them.
History of scientific method We consider the scientific contemplation of nature and poetry as two complementary forms of observation, with which it is said that both are justified, each on its own, but one should not be confused with the other. -----Niels Bohr. The man from the beginning has remained interested in the discovery of things but even more logical explanation of all of them to the point of what we now understand as 'science'. All science, is the product of knowledge that have changed over the years, from ancient times until today. These constant changes are the result of ideologies of great scientists and philosophers who have contributed their very particular perspective, bringing these claims to a set of different points of view in which specific criteria are spelled out.
The Industrial Revolution The Industrial Revolution, which lasted from the 18th through the 19th century, had its positive and negative effects on the world. The many undesirable effects proved to be the reason for the positive results. Many great quantities of advancements and inventions were created during this period of time, which enabled the people to prosper into our current social structure. The Industrial Revolution led to many progressive advancements and inventions. These machines that were invented helped to make work more efficient.
Quinton Ross The Scientific Revolution has had a dramatic impact throughout the world. It has helped us make scientific advancements, such as heliocentricity and atomism, helped us find flaws in our government, and allowed women to be involved in education,. Despite persecution from the Catholic Church, it made a difference in the world. The basis for the Scientific Revolution was the Scientific Method.1 This process uses logic and experimentation to explain works of the universe. This process removed blind adherence to tradition from science, and allowed scientists to logically find answers through the use of reasoning.1 One scientist by the name of Nicolaus Copernicus created the heliocentric model of the universe.
“Today, there is a popular consensus that the term ‘Renaissance’ refers to a profound and enduring upheaval and transformation in culture, politics, art and society in Europe between the years 1400 and 1600” (Brotton 9). Science was at the forefront of this expansion because of the speed at which technology advanced communication. With the invention of the printing press, education boomed and suddenly producing accurate copies of important books of the time was no longer a major time consuming process. Not only that, but now information in textbooks could continuously be updated as scholars began to better understand and learn more about their subject areas. This newfound availability of literature helped spur the movement of Renaissance Humanism.
Some scientific geniuses have innovatively shaped the inventions of the progressive world and the tools which we use today. It has been the political geniuses who have produced a society that provides us with both the benefits and the limitations which we have today in the political arena. In some fields, the brilliant physicists have created the sophisticated concepts of what we have today and we have used to help shape what we think about the universe. And in the other fields, the psychiatric geniuses, such as Sigmund Freud developed psychoanalytic school of psychology which is now embraced as the building blocks of
The role of nature of government helped people to protect their rights when famous Enlightenment thinkers believed people could be trusted to govern. First, Abigail Adams grandparents taught her how to read and write, and was born in Quincy, Massachusetts.

Abigail Adams believed that man could be trusted to govern. Second, John Locke’s father got John Locke into government.
