About This Item

2010. Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2010. Octavo. XIV, 508 pages. With several illustrations (also in colour). Original Hardcover with original dustjacket in protective collector's mylar. Excellent, as new condition. Includes for example the following essays: A Florentine Education / Gap years / A Tuscan Archimedes / Life in the Serenissima / Hell an Mathematics / Barycentric Exercises / De Motu / Galileo at 25 / Galilean Science / Poetical Interlude / The Pope / Dramatis Personae / Last Days / Glossary of NAmes etc. Galileo Galilei (15 February 1564[3] – 8 January 1642) was an Italian polymath: astronomer, physicist, engineer, philosopher, and mathematician. He played a major role in the scientific revolution of the seventeenth century. His contributions to observational astronomy include the telescopic confirmation of the phases of Venus, the discovery of the four largest satellites of Jupiter (named the Galilean moons in his honour), and the observation and analysis of sunspots. Galileo also worked in applied science and technology, inventing an improved military compass and other instruments. Galileo's championing of heliocentrism and Copernicanism was controversial during his lifetime, when most subscribed to either geocentrism or the Tychonic system. He met with opposition from astronomers, who doubted heliocentrism because of the absence of an observed stellar parallax. The matter was investigated by the Roman Inquisition in 1615, which concluded that heliocentrism was "foolish and absurd in philosophy, and formally heretical since it explicitly contradicts in many places the sense of Holy Scripture." Galileo later defended his views in Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, which appeared to attack Pope Urban VIII and thus alienated him and the Jesuits, who had both supported Galileo up until this point. He was tried by the Inquisition, found "vehemently suspect of heresy", and forced to recant. He spent the rest of his life under house arrest. While under house arrest, he wrote one of his best-known works, Two New Sciences, in which he summarized work he had done some forty years earlier on the two sciences now called kinematics and strength of materials. He has been called the "father of observational astronomy", the "father of modern physics", the "father of scientific method", and the "father of science". (Wikipedia)
