The of truth that wouldn’t be questionable.

The scientific revolution had a huge impact in the area of development for things like physics, mathematics, astronomy, biology etc. The scientists were Nicolaus Copernicus, Galileo Galilei, and Johannes Kepler. This event was one to affect people in their ways of thinking, for example their beliefs. Mysteries were being solved by mathematics and experiments, because people solved most of the mysteries they began to discover that their old beliefs, teachings of greek philosophers like Aristotle and Plato, were wrong and started to believe the new era.Nicolaus C. and Galileo G. were not the most important people when talking about this event, in fact both modern philosophy and modern mathematics began with works of Rene Descartes. It all started when he didn’t like the methods of the people in the science field which then lead to  when his analytical method focused on the question of ‘How do we know’. He wanted to rebuild a new system of truth that wouldn’t be questionable. He had some rules:  “- The first rule was never to accept anything as true unless I recognized it to be evidently such: that is, carefully to avoid precipitation and prejudgment, and to include nothing in my conclusions unless it presented itself so clearly and distinctly to my mind that there was no occasion to doubt it.- The second was to divide each of the difficulties which I encountered into as many parts as possible, and as might be required for an easier solution.- The third was to think in an orderly fashion, beginning with the things which were simplest and easiest to understand, and gradually and by degrees reaching toward more complex knowledge, even treating as though ordered materials which were not necessarily so.- The last was always to make enumerations so complete, and reviews so general, that I would be certain that nothing was omitted.” Francis Bacon was called the ‘major prophet’ of this event, at a young age he went to college. He accomplished a lot since then, he got into an education in law, he was admitted to the bar, he got a political career, he acquired a seat in the House of Commons, and held the position of the Lord Chancellor and Baron Verulam. Soon after he became famous for his speeches in Parliament and for being a lawyer that was considered an expert on English constitutional law. He didn’t like the way people would jump to conclusions from the smallest of things. Francis soon came up to a conclusion of that there were 4 ways of false knowledge or as he said “idols”: – Idols of the tribe: False notions due to the human nature and common to all men. An example would be geocentricity which was due to the limits of human insight.- Idols of the cave: Personal interpretations due to individual makeup or disposition. An example would be Gilbert’s “magnetic world view.”- Idols of the market-place: The problem of language and the confusion of words and terms. An example of this relates to the problem with definitions of words which likewise depend upon words.- Idols of the theatre: The dogmas of philosophies that are received from wrong “laws of demonstration.” This involves the results of the Aristotelian method of syllogistic argumentation. Although some of their steps were different, both of them wanted to change the way people thought, both  of them were trying to find methods of reasoning to fix the view path of science from the past. They were both  committed to find the real reasoning for the ways of science, they both seem to have had success in what they were doing. Yes, they were the ones that started the whole concept but just as they are known for the scientific revolution Galileo G. and Nicolaus C. are still also known for this event.  In conclusion the scientific revolution was a huge impact in the modern world because without it happening we might still be thinking and believing the false and old things. It changed many opinions and views of what people saw about nature and science.
