Indeed, Russo cannot be much wrong in ascribing a major role, in this play, to the Greeks. Mathematical reconstructions out, textual studies lq Indeed—crucially—the works of Archimedes meant to ancient readers something different from what they meant to, say, Galileo. First, I think Russo puts too much stress on a single period.

Essentially, this is a Popperian version of the hypothetico-deductive model, consisting of construct- ing theoretical domains, producing conclusions according to mathematical reasoning, and interpreting and testing those conclusions by appealing to empirical realizations.

We may often be wary today, as dimenticat historians, of suggesting all-encompassing models of historical progress and decline. A truly forgotten revolution! While something profound clearly changed roughly between the fifth and the fourth centuries B.

It will serve as excellent reading in a survey of the history of science, besides of course offering an important thesis, well worth our critical attention. PhysicsMathematicsHistory of Science.

As this shift gets us from speculation into facts, it is of obvious methodological value.
