Copernicus and His Successors

Front Cover
A&C Black, Jan 1, 1995 - Science - 244 pages
The essays in Copernirus and his Successors deal both with the influences on Copernicus, including that of Greek and Arabic thinkers, and with his own life and attitudes. They also examine how he was seen by contemporaries and finally describe his relationship to other scientists, including Galileo, Brahe and Kepler.
