The Scientific Odyssey

The Scientific Odyssey is a podcast exploration of scientific inquiry through it's history and philosophy.  New episodes weekly.

Oct 2, 2016

This week we take a look at the early life and work of Tuscan natural philosopher and engineer, Galileo Galilee.  We examine his investigations on motion, specifically falling bodies, that will lead him into the initial stages of conflict with the Aristotelian natural philosophers of the Scholastic universities of Italy.  We will also examine the steps of scientific inquiry he developed as a part of his work.
