Origins of Modern Science: A History of Science from Copernicus to Newton

Course number : 19792   
« back to classes page

Only five hundred years ago, most people thought the Earth was the center of the universe and that there were only four elements: earth, air, water and fire. In this class you'll learn how five men and a propitious sequence of historical events – including two supernovas and the Black Plague – changed that view forever. And you'll learn how science itself changed from mystical lore and reliance on ancient authority to an organized activity of measurement, testing and revision of theories that has made possible our modern world.
