Abstract

Science Research: The “Long Conversation”

  • Ideas in science can take a long time to develop.
  • How do they develop?
  • These books document a part of a conversation that began 447 years ago and spanned a 153 year period… documenting:
  • how the overall nature of the universe was worked out,
  • the establishment of the scientific method, and the boundaries of religious authority,
  • and culminated in Isaac Newton’s book that presented his three laws of motion that allow us to explore the universe to this day.
