The near century that separates the important astronomical findings of Galileo Galilei and the vastly influential mathematical work of Sir Isaac Newton represents a pivotal stage of transition in the history of science. As a result of the raging intellectual battle between tradition and innovation which began in the 15th century, science was penetrated by a new outlook which placed emphasis on experiment and observation. Includes an Index.
