The Scientific Revolution as an event saw the transformation of magical traditions to more practical and rationale methods of interpreting why certain theories or events transpired. Cohen described hermeticist or hermeticism as records that were reconstructed during the 17th century by historians and scientists. The development of Hermeticism in relation to the Scientific Revolution broadened historical horizons because this event called for “…Historians to think scientist’s thoughts after him, or continuous development.” Early social events, theories, and developments of the Scientific Revolution shaped how this period of history would be explored, interpreted, and recorded during specific eras.

Lily Benda CIV 202 Professor Heern 23 April 2014 The Enlightenment, a period marked by significant changes in rational thought, secularism, social equality, individual freedom, right to property, and human rights, occurred during the eighteenth century. The scientific revolution of the seventeenth century brought about the fundamental ideas on which the Enlightenment was based. Trade and science at the time were already spreading but during the Enlightenment era, these ideas started in Europe, spread globally, and became popular. This new transformation of thought and everyday life impacted the world on a global scale by bringing up new ways to make the government more rational. During the eighteenth century, these new ideas on scientific thought, advanced technologies, and new interests in trade-helped spread and impact the Enlightenment globally.
Isaac Newton did several thing that positively affected the scientific community during the Scientific Revolution and still affect society today, he recognized the three laws of motion, discovered gravity, and co-developed calculus. The scientific revolution was a time of inquisition, discovery, and new ideas. The scientific revolution started at the end of the renaissance, with Nicholas Copernicus, who said that the earth revolves around the sun. and ended in the late 18th century, with Isaac Newton, who proposed the three universal laws of motion, and proposed a mechanical universe.1 The scientific revolution lay a foundation for what is now modern science. Many achievements in the numerous fields of science where accomplished in this time period.
Understanding the Scientific Revolution The Scientific Revolution was a time of change and new thinking. Many innovators had new ideas about the earth and many other things, but most challenged the Church in thinking of these new concepts. This revolution was so important to the development of mankind that modern historians honor the phrase with initial capital letters. This change of thought took almost two centuries to become established in western Europe; today this prolonged crisis is known as the Scientific Revolution. This new way of seeking the world, was first introduced with Copernicus's work published in 1543.
Europe changed dramatically in the course of the 17th and 18th centuries. In many ways, this change was a result of changes in intellectual’s approach to natural history, or science. This revolution in scientific affairs, sparked by thinkers like Bacon, Newton, and Descartes, resulted in a significant upheaval in the arts and literature of Europe. Research into this spread of scientific thinking, which would eventually come to influence ideas about such wildly disparate fields of human endeavor as physics, religion, and governmental theory, shows that Francis Bacon played a major role in encouraging the growth of the Scientific Revolution. Writing in the early part of the 17th century, Bacon painted a tempting picture of a world guided by scientific insight in his seminal work “New Atlantis.” In this work, Bacon reveals his ideas for science and its future, and shows how they could work to improve the world and its inhabitants.
Medical Sciences during the age of Enlightenment During the Enlightenment Age there were many new development of the sciences, new guiding principles through the encyclopedia, and the upbringing of medical science practices. These advances improved knowledge throughout society because of their technological improvements and new knowledge to mankind. Discoveries in Europe were critical in the upbringing of science. “Europeans scientific revolution matched the new “America” perfectly, they were making it perfect; so they said” (Science in America,Watts). Exploration presented different kinds of plants, animals, and diverse beliefs for people, which showed the different ways science could affect everyone, while not even knowing it.
Humanists wanted people to study subjects like politics and history other then the study of philosophy or math. Other people have focused on the positive influence of science during the Renaissance, like the discovery of the anatomy of the human body. There were many scientific advancements during the Renaissance that helped humanity now and then. During and after the Renaissance of the 12th century, Europe experienced an intellectual revolution, especially with their interest in the natural world. In the 14th century, however, an event that would come to be known as the Plague started.

The main goal of the Enlightenment was to popularize the scientific method to be used to change the values and mindset of the western world. It was to use the Scientific Revolution as a basis to alter the study of human behavior—by studying it rationally. In continuation of popularizing the advance of science and philosophy, many works were translated and published in the vernacular so that as many as possible could be exposed to these ideas. The Scientific Revolution started with scientists and philosophers like Galileo and Francis Bacon, and expanded into the Enlightenment, where all educated people could be party to the dispersion of the ideas of Newton, Voltaire, and Rousseau.
