Western Civ II.

scientific revolution & enlightenment

Compare the political views and the opinions on human understanding of John Locke and Thomas Hobbes.  How do their views differ on the two subjects? John Locke believed everyone was born equal. Only gained knowledge through experience. Thomas Hobbes believed that every human being needed a master. Compared humans to animals.
The Enlightenment riod; art, philosophy, science, politics, and literature flourished and created a new way of thinking. For the first time people started becoming independent in thought, and moving away from the strong influence of the Church.
Immanuel Kant defines enlightenment as "man's release from his self-incurred tutelage."  Explain what Kant meant by this. He means that the enlightenment is a time to stop relying on others to think for you, and to start deciding, and thinking for yourself. Independence in thought, discover knowledge and truth for ourselves.
Briefly describe the Scientific Revolution and use two examples from our study The Scientific Revolution-era during which new ideas and knowledge in physics, astronomy, biology, medicine and chemistry transformed ancient views of nature and laid the foundations for modern science.The telescope; the stars in sky- Copernicus
