An interesting discussion about Science and Gallileo
Via Popehat, I discovered an interesting (and long) series of posts regarding Gallileo’s relative unimportance in the switch to heliocentrism.
Anyone into Here I Stand, the history of science, and/or Italian politics should spend a few good hours reading The Great Ptolemaic Smackdown. I’ll be playing bridge, so you’ve got nothing better to do. At least, not here.
