On Tycho's island : Tycho Brahe and his assistants, 1570-1601 by J. R Christianson( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tycho Brahe (1546-1601), the premier patron-practitioner of science in sixteenth-century Europe, established a new role of scientist as administrator, active reformer, and natural philosopher. This book explores his wide range of activities, which encompass much more than his reputed role of astronomer. Christianson broadens this singular perspective by portraying him as Platonic philosopher, Paracelsian chemist. Ovidian poet, and devoted family man. From his private island in Denark, Tycho Brahe used patronage, printing, friendship, and marriage to incorporate men and women skilled in science, technology, and the fine arts into his program of cosmic reform. This pioneering study includes capsule biographies of over a hundred individuals, including Johannes Kepler, Willebrord Snel, Willem Blaeu, several bishops, and numerous technical specialists, all of whom helped shape the culture of the Scientific Revolution."--Jacket

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chronicles the scientific revolution throughout Renaissance Europe, which directly challenged Church authority, including the efforts of Tycho Brahe, a Danish nobleman who built the first observatory and catalogued the planets and stars; Johannes Kepler, a German mathematician who established the laws of planetary motion; Galileo Galilei, an Italian physicist tried by the Inquisition for his advocacy of Copernicanism, forced to recant, and placed under house arrest; Giordano Bruno, the Italian astronomer who, for his theories of the infinite nature of the universe, was accused of heresy and burned at the stake; and Isaac Newton, the English physicist who described natural laws such as universal gravitation. The film tells this story with archival graphics, animation, and dramatic re-creations. Contemporary scientists and historians, including Simon Schaffer (Cambridge University), John Christianson (Luther College), Owen Gingerich (Harvard University), George Coyne (Vatican Observatory) and Patricia Fara (Cambridge University), discuss these groundbreaking developments, which led to the creation of modern science and the way we view our world and the universe today--IMDb
