Lecture no. 2 from the course: Redefining Reality: The Intellectual Implications of Modern Science
Taught by Professor Steven Gimbel | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
Take a step back to define reality as understood by the ancient Greeks. Then work your way forward through revolutionary ideas about reality proposed by Plato, Aristotle, Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, and finally Newton, who inspired the Age of Enlightenment. Close with the Romantic backlash of the 19th century.
