9780416744101: Astronomical Revolution: Copernicus, Kepler, Borelli (Library Reprint)

Originally published in English in 1973. This volume traces the development of the revolution which so drastically altered man’s view of the universe in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The "astronomical revolution" was accomplished in three stages, each linked with the work of one man. With Copernicus, the sun became the centre of the universe. With Kepler, celestial dynamics replaced the kinematics of circles and spheres used by Copernicus. With Borelli the unification of celestial and terrestrial physics was completed by abandonment of the circle in favour the straight line to infinity.

Book Description Methuen & Co. Ltd, London 1980 reprint of 1973 edition, 1980. Cloth, 8vo, 22 cm, 531 pp, ills. From the blurb: "In his studies of the three great astronomers of the rime Alexandre Koyré traces the development of the revolution which so drastically altered man's view of the universe in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This 'astronomica! revolution' was accomplished in three stages, each linked with the work of one man. With Copernicus, the sun became the centre of the universe. With Kepler, celestial dynamics replaced the kinematics of circles and spheres used by Copernicus. With Borelli the unification of celestial and terrestrial physics was completed by abandonment of the circle in favour of the straight line to infinity, Where possible, the author allows the astronomers to speak for themselves from their own writings. The result is a book that catches the spiritual and intellectuai atmosphere of the period under study." Covers a trifle rubbed, otherwise Very Good in slightly used dustwrapper.
