Galileo became an accomplished lutenist himself and would have learned early from his father a scepticism for established authority, [17] the value of well-measured or quantified experimentation, an appreciation for a periodic or musical measure of time or rhythm, as well as the results expected from a combination of mathematics and experiment. It has 6 references. His inventions, from compasses and balances to improved telescopes and microscopes, revolutionized astronomy and biology. Inhe moved to the University of Padua where he taught geometry, mechanicsand astronomy until

Logical positivism accepts only testable statements as meaningful, rejects metaphysical interpretations, and embraces verificationism a set of theories of knowledge that combines logicismempiricismand linguistics to ground philosophy on a basis consistent with examples from the empirical sciences. Current approaches[ edit ] Naturalism's axiomatic assumptions[ edit ] All scientific study inescapably builds on at least some essential assumptions that are untested by scientific processes. He argued that "the only principle that does not inhibit progress is: anything goes". Each paradigm has its own distinct questions, aims, and interpretations.

Galileo was the first of seven childr Mathematics in physics would reduce to symbolic logic via logicism, while rational reconstruction would convert ordinary language into standardized equivalents, all networked and united by a logical syntax. Thereby, only the verifiable was scientific and cognitively meaningful, whereas the unverifiable was unscientific, cognitively meaningless "pseudostatements"—metaphysical, emotive, or such—not worthy of further review by philosophers, who were newly tasked to organize knowledge rather than develop new knowledge. Livia took the name Sister Arcangela and was ill for most of her life.

That is, it relies on a pre-existing understanding, a systematic set of beliefs. Quineit is impossible to test a theory in isolation.

To enforce this control, the Church set up the Inquisition. That is, the choice of a new paradigm is based on observations, even though those observations are made against the background of the old paradigm. Or, rather, individual statements cannot be validated on their own: only coherent systems can be justified.

The first direct attribution of the quote to Galileo dates to years after the trial, though it appears on a wall behind him in a Spanish painting commissioned by one of Galileo's friends.

During the fifteenth century, the Catholic church was the authority on scientific knowledge.Galileo Galilei (), who was considered the father of modern science, made many important contributions to the fields of physics, astronomy, cosmology, mathematics and philosophy.
