Originally published in English in 1973. This volume traces the development of the revolution which so drastically altered man’s view of the universe in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The "astronomical revolution" was accomplished in three stages, each linked with the work of one man. With Copernicus, the sun became the centre of the universe. With Kepler, celestial dynamics replaced the kinematics of circles and spheres used by Copernicus. With Borelli the unification of celestial and terrestrial physics was completed by abandonment of the circle in favour the straight line to infinity.

"In his study of three great astronomers – Copernicus, Kepler, and Borelli – an eminent historian of science examines the revolution the drastically altered man's view of the universe in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. With erudition and remarkable clarity, the author explains the precise nature of each man's work, placing it in the context of its time and correcting many misconceptions about it. Where possible, he allows the astronomers to speak for themselves, quoting key passages from their writings. Many of these passages are translated into English for the first time."
