Chapter 5 The Enlightenment and the American Revolution 1700-1800 5-1 Objectives-What you need to focus on How did ideas in science change from Medieval times to after the mid 1500s? How is our world different today b/c of the Scientific Revolution? How did changes in science lead to

changes in other areas of life such as the relationship between people and government? Old Ways of Thinking Medieval View- views of science and the world around us were based on ancient teachings and the church. Anything that could not be explained was deemed magic or mystical. Example-Geocentric Theory- old view that the earth was the center of the universe.

Scientific Revolution Scientific Revolution-by the 1500s great advances in science were made due to new inventions and approaches in science. People started placing value on truths that could be proven rather than magic, mysticism, and ancient writings. Natural Law-rules discoverable by reason,

govern scientific forces such as gravity and magnetism. Developments out of the Scientific Revolutio Heliocentric Theory- idea that the sun was the center of the universe. Nicolaus Copernicus-believed earth was round, and that the earth revolved around the sun. (Heliocentric Theory) This went against the previously accepted Geocentric Theory- which means that the earth was the center of the

universe. Johannes Kepler proved Copernicus theory using math. He proved planets move in ellipses or oval paths. Galileo 1564-1642 Built his own telescope, and published works that the sun was center of the universe. Galileo

published his findings and was forced by the Church to say his writings were false or face torture. He lived under house arrest until he died. Is there still tension between religion and Modern Science? How so?

Developments of the Scientific Revolution Francis Bacon and Rene Descartes-helped to develop the scientific method which showed scientific thought is not assumed but proven. Question Hypothesis Experiment Analyze Conclusion Both men believed in rejecting old

assumptions and proving things based on math and scientific reasoning Why might the Church dislike the ideas of Bacon and Descartes? Isaac Newton mathematical genius who discovered gravity. The same force rules the motion of the planets and all matter in earth and space. Scientific Revolution Spreads to other fields Scientific instruments- microscope, barometer

and thermometer (Gabriel Farenheit) Medical- dissection of human corpses (Andreas Vesalius), vaccinations-ex. smallpox, red blood cells, bacteria Chemistry-matter, Boyles law-how volume, temperature and pressure of gas affect each other, carbonation, etc. Summary The scientific revolution brought reason and

proof into the field of science and threw out age old religion and theories Many important scientists contributed to the Scientific Revolution. Can you name some? What other fields besides astronomy were impacted by the Scientific Revolution How would our world be different without the Scientific Revolution? Basing value on proof (using natural laws) will cause people to question government authority over their lives, education and how

goods and services are distributed Government should exist to represent and protect the people Is this a radical idea??????? Scientific Revolution leads to Enlightenment Advances in science led philosophers to question old theories and authority. This branched into philosophers starting to question the way social classes were

structured and the governments that had power over them Natural Law was used to study human behavior and solve problems of society. *Notes from the book start here* 5-1 Objectives-what you need to know How changes in science led people to question government and society What were governments like around the world before the Enlightenment ?

Know Enlightenment philosophers and the ideas they proposed. Focus Question: What effects did Enlightenment philosophers have on government, education and economics (the way goods and services are distributed) The Enlightenment Period Time period- Late 1600s into the 1700s. Location-European cities Definition- A time period of new thoughts and

ideas that applied human logic and reason to the world. Philosophers stressed that individuals had the power to solve problems. Many important philosophers during this time period influenced political thought in the 18th century. This time is also know as the Age of Reason The Enlightenment Period cont Philosophers challenged the norm by rejecting the Divine Right of Kingsmeaning kings had the right to rule

because they were chosen by God. Philosophers thought government should be responsive to the people Philosophers common beliefs about society Philosophers during this time had predominately 2 separate beliefs 1. That overall society and people were good. There was no need for an oppressive government to keep control in society

2. That overall society is evil and strict government was necessary in order to maintain a civil society Most philosophers believed in the first view Thomas Hobbes People enter into a social contract between themselves and

government. People give up some of their natural rights to a sovereign ruler or government to help maintain order among people. This helps prevent war. People fear chaos and death. He wrote the Thomas Hobbes' book

the Leviathan was written in 1651. How does the title page to the right demonstrate his beliefs? All people have natural John Locke

rights. He felt natural rights were the freedom to life, liberty, and property. Government has an obligation to protect peoples natural rights and not take advantage of their position in power. If government does not do this people have a right to rebellion.

Do you agree with Hobbes or Locke? Jean Jacques Believed in the common good Roussea of the community. This u common good was liberty and

freedom. Rousseaus social contract consisted of government receiving power as long as they protected peoples natural rights. Rousseaus social contract greatly differed from Thomas Hobbes. Voltaire Believed in the freedom of religions

and speech. He spoke out against the French government and Catholic Church. He was imprisoned. Believed in the separation of powers in government. These powers should be split up into legislative,

executive, and judicial branches. The branches would have the power to check each other to stop one branch from gaining to much power. Baron de Montesquieu

Believed that laws existed to preserve social order, not to avenge crimes. He focused his writings on reforming the criminal justice system. He wanted to end torturing witnesses, irregular proceedings in trials, and punishments that were cruel. In his view capital punishment should be

abolished. Cesare Beccaria Iron Maiden Most persuasive female philosopher who believed that believed in equal education for women

Books-Diderots Encyclopedia Word of mouth Salons- meeting places where philosophers exchanged ideas. Newspapers Political songs Pamphlets The Enlightenment Catches On The Enlightenment ideas became so popular that art, music and literature

reflected how culture changed. Literature Many writers were censored so philosophes disguised ideas in works of fiction. Example-Gullivers Travels in 1726 by

Johnathan Swift Novels-lengthy pieces of writing with a plot, characters and suspenseful stories. Art 1600s and 1700s was dominated by Baroque style-grand ornate design After the Enlightenment artists started

using a more simple and elegant style. Rococo- moved away from religion and was lighter and more elegant. Rococo was reflected in music, clothing and architecture. See page 190 Baroque vs. Rococo Baroque Think Palace of Versailles, Rembrandt (painter), sculpted

fountains Rococo Think lighthearted and charming, less powerful and serious Portrait Landscapes Music The Enlightenment produced a lighter

more elegant style of music known as classical. Composers-Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven More middle class people by mid 1700s could pay to concerts to be preformed publicly. At left: Mozart At right: Beethoven

Enlightenment and Monarchy Some Monarchs during the 1700s were willing to listen to the philosophers Enlightened Despot (absolute ruler)- a king/queen that embraced enlightenment ideas and made reforms in their countries Why would Monarchs agree to make reforms based on Enlightenment ideals? Enlightened Despots Frederick the Greatking of Prussia and
