    I should think that anyone who considered it reasonable for the whole universe to move in order to let the earth remain fixed would be irrational than one who should climb to the top of your cupola just to get a view of the city and its environs, and then demand that the whole countryside should revolve around him so that he would not have to take the trouble to turn his head. It often seems hard to justify reading old works of science After all, science continually advances pioneering works today will be obsolete tomorrow As a friend of mine said when he saw me reading this, That shit s outdated And it s true this shit is outdated.Well, for one thing, understanding the history of the development of a theory often aids in the understanding of the theory Look at any given technical discipline today, and it s overwhelming you are presented with such an imposing edifice of knowledge that it seems impossible Yet even the largest oak was once an acorn, and even the most frightening equation was once an idle speculation Case in point Achieving a modern understanding of planetary orbits would...

    A pleasant Venetian villa through the open window, we see tourists photographing each other with their iPads while gondolas traverse a canal in the background SALVIATI effusively greets his guests, SAGREDO and SIMPLICIO SALVIATI Welcome, dear friends, and many thanks for answering my urgent convocation It is my earnest wish that we now devote some hours to mutual discussion, as we have so often done before, but this time on a different topic to wit, that book written by Galileo in 1629, which has excited so much controversy in the nearly four centuries since it first appeared to an astonished world.SAGREDO Indeed, there is nothing that could afford me pleasure, for I know that no man has greater power than you, Salviati, to penetrate to the heart of things and make the difficult appear simple I am yours to command, and what little wit I have is entirely at your disposal.SALVIATI If my discourse has merit, it is as much due to the keen testing it has received at your hands as to any small ability I may myself possess And naturally I must also thank Simplicio, who will in his usual way propound the contrary hypotheses, and take it in good part that he is continually refuted and humiliated at our hands I hope he will understand that it is not done in any spirit of malice, but merely that the truth may be the plainly seen.SIMPLICIO To be honest, I do not know what you are talking about I feel that, on the whole, I have acquitted myself well in our verba...

    The end of Scholasticism starts with this book The Aristotelian thought or as the book usually calls them The Peripatetics and its appeal to authority and the appearance of the phenomena as truth are overturned Sometimes what we see such as the sun rising in the east is not what is I loved the way Galileo uses the Aristotelian logic to poke holes in the Ptolemaic science particularly, using proof by contradiction Often in the other books I ve read they ll make a statement such that Galileo purposely kept his argument to the Ptolemaic versus the Copernican system and ignored the Tycho system because he couldn t refute that as easily After having read this book, I don t see that at all The argument on the movement of the sunspots moving across the sun are best explained by a moving earth or otherwise would lead to bizarre motions of the sun and would work against the Tycho system as well Except for the bible, I don t think any single book from all the books I ve read over the last five years has been mentioned or quoted frequently then this book has There are multiple reasons to really enjoy this book It s a gr...

    Why hadn t I read this book before Not just one of the greatest texts in the history of science but fabulously written and entertaining as a dialogue We hear about Galileo in high school, but that isn t like getting it right from the source.

    I have read only first ten pages of the book.

    I read parts of this book in 2016, when I was self studying physics I used a textbook that often referred to the main historical works of figures like Copernicus, Kepler and Galilei, and I thought it interesting to read parts of these references as well.I found Galilei s books surprisingly accessible and fun to read Works of Copernicus and Kepler are hard to read for modern day readers due to the heavy use of outdated and complex mathematics Galileo uses the form of a dialogue to bring his point across a world of difference In his first Dialogue, on the two main world systems Ptolemaic and Copernican, or geocentric and heliocentric respectively , Galileo uses three characters to explain the two different systems Salviati is the modern by Galilei s standards view of Copernicus, which set the Sun at the centre of the cosmos and the Earth and the five planets in circular motions around the Sun Simplicio represents the old system, based on the astronomical model of Ptolemy and the philosophy of Aristotle this is the system that was guiding in Christian theology at the time due to Thomas Aquinas who combined the philosophy of Aristotle with the Christian doctrines Salviati starts to explain the practical consequences of the Copernican view, while Simplicio keeps using Aristotelean objections to his v...

    Two New Sciences is definitely a unique physical treatise in that it is written as a Platonic style dialogue As the title suggests, the dialogue serves to highlight a shift in thought and the format does prove suitable to allow ideas and opinions to clash freely Simplicio is the clear cut Aristotelian of the group Sagredo and Salviati seem like mouthpieces for conflicting ideas with which Galileo himself had to reckon to arrive at his conclusions which are given in the text written by the Academician Another good thing about the dialogue style is that the reader can elect to follow closely or to remain a little aloof and just listen in I chose the latter for the majority part and this reading experience reminded me of my high school and college years where I mostly found myself merely present at conversations without being really involved in them pause brief but painful flashbacks which abruptly dissipate Whoa, sorryanyways While this fate isn t exactly enviable in real life social settings, the approach works well for this book Those who do choose to follow along, I admire you The Euclidean style of working with ratios and line segments rather than quantifying values with numbers dominates the many proofs Again, I think it s helpful as a work which displays the history of ideas at play and in transition Time honored opin...

    This is still a fascinating read over 400 years later They don t write them like this any the classic dialogue format that one finds in classic writings such as those by Plato was not in general use However, given the clash between the two dominant models of the order of the universe at the time, it was a perfect choice, and well argued on each side Of course, the Copernican system was proved out, but the process by which it was done is an excellent example of the use of logic, and the demonstration of facts, observation and data as the trump cards over the thought experiment mindset behind the Ptolemaic system In that respect, the Dialogue is an important forerunner of the modern scientific paper it s written in such a way that it not only proves itself right, but explains how the data was gathered and analyzed, and invites others to du...

    This is a great book to start with for those interested in the scientific classics Written as a dialogue and in the vernacular rather than Latin, Dialogues is a much accessible read than the Copernicus text I started with There is still a bit of geo...
