FutureLearn: The Scientific Revolution: Understanding the Roots of Modern Science

 with  Andrea Sangiacomo

Trace the roots of modern science

How did the science of today come about? What constitutes ‘modern’ science? How does science relate to religion?

Answer these questions and more with this course that travels back in time to the seventeenth-century Scientific Revolution to explore the roots of modern science. On the course you will critically explore the history of science, challenging established simplistic narratives of how science has developed. You will also examine modern scientific methods, the relationship between science, religion and secularism, and, if you work in science, consider the origins of our own discipline.

This course has been created for those working in science who wish to know more about the origins of modern science. It’s also been created for people with a general interest in science and history.
