The Scientific Revolution

The Scientific Revolution was a rapid advance in learning as a result of the systematic form of inquiry known as the Scientific Method. The consistency of this method made it easy for scientific discoveries to be transferred from one country to another; it gave scientists a common language. Some key figures in the Scientific Revolution include: Copernicus’ revelation that the earth revolved around the sun, Rene Descartes’ attempt to base his beliefs about the world on provable facts, Francis Bacon’s copious writings on the possibilities for science to improve the human condition, as well as Newton’s theories on motion and gravity.
