Description:

This paper attempts to demonstrate why the Scientific Revolution in the 16th and 17th centuries was not just simple evolution and how science, as we know it, did not really emerge until this period. It examines how, once underway, it dispelled commonly held principles based on simple observation by predecessors, such as Aristotle and Ptolemy and how, in doing so, managed to cling to tradition and religious beliefs.
