Perhaps, then, the scientific revolution consisted just in this: Knotentheorie, Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebiete, Vol. Preface by Marcello Cini.

The community of rivoluuzione of math- ematics should be grateful for Russo for this achievement, and should hope that the book gets quickly translated into other major languages.

Indeed—crucially—the works of Archimedes meant to ancient readers something different from what they meant to, say, Galileo. We should try to explain how this has happened and, thanks to Russo, the problem may now be addressed. Somehow, a process of forgetting must have occurred in between. Hellenistic science was focused on the city of Alexandria. Briefly, I find his dismissal of non-Hellenistic science unmotivated.

This was not West- luccio Europe of the 16th—17th centuries, but the eastern Mediterranean of the third century B.

He engaged in mass purges and expulsions of all intellectuals. Hypothetico-deductive science may have its roots in Greece—but the roots are tan- gled, as it were, leading to surprising places such as pure mathematics, speculative medicine, rivoluzinoe rhetoric.

Indeed, Russo cannot be much wrong in ascribing a major role, in this play, to the Greeks. First, it belongs to a new wave of studies of Greek mathematics, where emphasis shifts from the Classical antecedents to the Hellenistic ex- tant sources themselves.

This did not dimdnticata empirical realizations, and it merely anticipated the achievements of the Hellenistic world in math- ematical reasoning.


La rivoluzione dimenticataRusso promotes the belief that Hellenistic science in the period — BC reached heights not achieved dimenticats Classical age science, and rivoluuzione that it went further than ordinarily thought, in multiple fields not normally associated with ancient science.

Some structure might, and therefore should, be discerned in it. Certainly not at the so-called scientific revolution—which merely brought back to life the Hellenistic methods it knew from its literary sources.

But what if the very same things change their meanings according to their contexts?

When we give an etymology for a word we hardly ever explain its real meaning, past or present, as such meanings depend on a synchronic network of connotations.

This page russso last edited on 5 Septemberat In L’ America dimenticataRusso suggests that the Americas were known to some European civilizations in ancient times, probably discovered by the Phoenicians or the Carthaginiansbut that the knowledge was lost under Roman expansion in the 2nd century BCE.

For this shift in general, ruzso [Saito ]. Thanks to Russo, we may begin to think through such issues: If the book helps to renew interest in such grand narratives, it will have made a very interesting contribution. Nor later than the third lx B. The same principle holds for intellectual achievements, yet Russo to exaggerate a little reads Archimedes almost as if he was the contemporary of Popper.

As this shift gets us from speculation into facts, it is of obvious methodological value.

Third and finally, whatever we may think of the narrative Russo offers for the entire his- tory of Western science, I feel we ought to applaud him for offering it. Yet the play of the history of Western science was not entirely episodic.


He also concludes that the 17th-century scientific revolution in Europe was due in large part to the recovery of Hellenistic science.

Among his main areas of interest are Gibbs measure of the Ising modelpercolation theory[1] and finite Bernoulli schemes, within which he proved an approximate version of the classical Kolmogorov’s zero—one law.

In the history of science, he has reconstructed some contributions of the Hellenistic astronomer Hipparchusthrough the analysis of his surviving works, and the proof of heliocentrism attributed by Plutarch to Seleucus of Seleucia and studied the history of theories of tides [3]from the Hellenistic to modern age. From Roman times right through the 17th cen- tury, throughout the history of Mediterranean and European civilizations, to do science was to study Greeks.

In fact, so Russo claims with great persuasive vigor, we have forgotten the true time and place this revolution took place. Log In Sign Up. Zur Geschichte epistemischer Dinge.
