Consideration was then given to many resemblances among the earth, the moon, and the planets ; for example, earthshine and moonshine, the phases both of the moon and Venus, the universal spherical form, etc. Salviati suggested that similar movements of all planets about the sun might imply a simple common explanation. He cited the moons of Jupiter as celestial evidence of a non-geocentric system. ) The Second Day was devoted to a consideration of traditional reasons, pro and con, for the motion of the earth, particularly its daily rotation.

Section 16) with downhill rollings, natural motion with violent ones (projectiles). He was at once experiential in his outlook and theoretical in his understanding; he used mathematics wherever practicable (probably not his mode of discovery), but subject to natural observations. With respect to the second new science, as Joseph-Louis, Comte de Lagrange (1736-1813), noted: Galileo undoubtedly laid the foundations of dynamics as a science — with due credit to the many particular results achieved by various precursors.

He himself, however, discovered some measurable characteristics of hot bodies and of musical harmony so that the vague line of demarcation gradually shifted. Philosophers, who delight in logical distinctions, debated the essential meaning of this nebulous dichotomy for centuries. Scientists, on the other hand, have recognized more and more that each experience has both objective and subjective aspects that cannot be wholly dissociated. The Assayer\ It now remains, in accordance with the promise made above to your Excellency, for me to tell you some of my thoughts about the proposition, "Motion is the cause of heat," and to show in what sense this may be true in my opinion.
