Description/Abstract

This article gives a brief synopsis of the scientific advancements made during the seventeenth century, the literature of which can partly be found at Syracuse University Special Collections. The author argues that the progenitors of the new scientific thought such as Galileo were not at odds with the mysticism and occultism of the past, and in fact still embraced certain parts of that Middle Ages past.
