Galileo Morality of telescope: Seeing the color of the telescope as significant means you don’t understand it Venice-merchents. They buy cheap and sell expensive Venice had long strong battles against supremacy in italy. Venice is a merchant oligarchy. Fixing affairs by reason. Being merchents is the only place that Galileo can work. And he doesn’t have to worry about the inquisition. Galileo moves to Florence as he doesn’t have the freedom he wants. Morality of the telescope is not important. Galileo was low paid so he didn’t feel like he owed them. Bretch (author) was communist. And the gang he hung around was higher class. What is the idea of building the telescope Walk out without looking. What is the significant of looking at the telescope for Galileo? Empirical proof. What until then can only be a hypothesis He is desperate for people to look, because if you do look, you will be convinced. Very naive what it takes to convince people When they all walk out without looking. He simply cant believe it.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
