"Quest'opera difende insieme i diritti della scienza e della cultura, esige libertà per lo scienziato e per l'uomo di cultura e affronta, oltre a questioni scientifiche, anche problemi di ordine cosmologico e filosofico, portando ovunque il senso nuovo della scienza moderna, il nuovo concetto dell'uomo e la forma nuova nella quale deve delinearsi il rapporto tra l'uomo e la natura." Con tali parole Ludovico Geymonat presentava questo dialogo, scritto da Galileo nel 1632 per confutare il sistema tolemaico e sostenere, invece, la validità e l'esattezza delle tesi di Copernico.

I should think that anyone who considered it more reasonable for the whole universe to move in order to let the earth remain fixed would be more irrational than one who should climb to the top of your cupola just to get a view of the city and its environs, and then demand that the whole countrysi

The end of Scholasticism starts with this book. The Aristotelian thought (or as the book usually calls them The Peripatetics) and its appeal to authority and the appearance of the phenomena as truth are overturned. Sometimes what we see (such as the sun rising in the east) is not what is. I loved th Leggi tutto
Why hadn't I read this book before? Not just one of the greatest texts in the history of science but fabulously written and entertaining as a dialogue. We hear about Galileo in high school, but that isn't like getting it right from the source.
I read parts of this book in 2016, when I was self-studying physics. I used a textbook that often referred to the main historical works of figures like Copernicus, Kepler and Galilei, and I thought it interesting to read (parts of) these references as well. I found Galilei's books surprisingly access Leggi tutto

We are in 1632, Galileo is showing us how to do science using a novel method to reason over natural phenomena. He reuses Plato’s dialogs to develop his ideas, perhaps trying to maximize the reach of his book by adopting a common format at that time. Or, I love to guess, he is criticizing ancient phi Leggi tutto
Two New Sciences is definitely a unique physical treatise in that it is written as a Platonic style dialogue. As the title suggests, the dialogue serves to highlight a shift in thought and the format does prove suitable to allow ideas and opinions to clash freely. Simplicio is the clear-cut Aristote Leggi tutto
