The Enlightenment and Scientific revolution Lilia Infantino

The Scientific revolution was a way historians describe the time when modern science became modern. Developments in math, physics, astronomy, human biology and more changed how people viewed nature and everything around them. The concept of it all started in the 18th century, Jean sylvian Bailly thought of it; out with the old, in with the new. In the beginning of the scientific revolution, everyone was focused on getting the knowledge from the people that came before them the ideas of who were there then.
Isaac newton published 'Dialogue concerning the two chief world systems principia' which completed the scientific revolution with "the grand synthesis" in 1687. using the formulated laws of motion and universal gravitation, it completes the synthesis and a 'new cosmology' at the end of the 18th century.
the time of the scientific revolution showed important information that changed the ideas of math, physics, astronomy, and biology that supported the understanding of more of the universe. This was a time of huge amounts of knowledge and information being learned, which was later called 'the development of science' in the 19th century. The time of science was something that never had happened before because everyone was doing experiments and trying to figure out why, what, how, and when everything happened. Everyone was working together, using others' thoughts and ideas to help theirs.
more than just ideas came out of the scientific revolution, inventions, creations, ways to explain and research better, and thinking that inspired others to do the same. The scientific method, a way to make a scientific observation, was made by many famous scientists to collect research, Aristotle, Galileo, and many more from all different time periods. The laws of motion and gravity were discovered by Isaac newton, which he started to research after an apple fell from a tree onto his head. Telescopes, Microscopes, and calculators all came out of the scientific revolution, Hans Lippershey, Zacharias Janssen, Willhelm Schickard all created things that are all used now and needed for newer advancements in science like cells and planets up close.
Century of Light, others know it as The Enlightenment. the enlightenment dominated the world of ideas with intellect and philosophy. this time included ideas of authority, legitimacy, liberty, tolerance, fraternity, constitutional government, and state and church separation. this time period was from 1715 to 1789, the philosophers and scientists from the enlightenment used the inventions and ideas from the people in the scientific revolution.
people started relying on mans' views of the world instead of looking to 'gods word'. this meant that the inventors and philosophers had more respect and more people to work with. this effected religion (roman catholic church), politics (monarchy), and culture. the roman catholic church started to fall more after the in and after the enlightenment. people started to think of how earth and everything else began, this was when theories like the big bang came upon.
multiple crucial ideas came out of the enlightenment that change the way everyone looked at the world. john Locke thought of a way for everyone to be equal and still have order, representative government. he said that "men are by nature free and equal against claims that God had made all people naturally subject to a monarch." this means that he thinks god created everyone equal and that here shouldn't be just one person who decides it all. this one idea had planted the seed of a new country which would soon be one of the most influential places to go in the world. Thomas Jefferson had revolted against king George III which made people want to find a place to be free. That later would be named America, a place where you go to be free.
Benjamin Franklin discovered something that we now rely on to conduct and keep research, electricity. He did not invent electricity but he found out what it is, how it works, and how to generate it. He discovered electricity through lightning, as in getting struck by lighting when flying a kite with a key in a storm. after the idea of it was known, others had started doing their own experiments and created things that we take for granted everyday. Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, we use this most likely everyday and it was all thanks to him using the research of others to impact everyone.
With both John Locke and Benjamin Franklin had people use their ideas to totally change the world by expanding on them.
