"History of Philosophy
During the Renaissance,
1400's to the early 1600's

    From the 1400's to the early 1600's, philosophers turned their attention to the way things happen on earth, and the way to seek truth through reason.    Scientists of the era were successful in their methods of investigation.    Mathematics grew in importance with the findings of Nicolaus Copernicus and Sir Isaac Newton.
    Copernicus, Galileo, and Johannes Kepler laid the foundation on which Newton later built his great system of the world.
