Write The First Customer Review

Johannes Kepler's discovery of the basic quantitative laws that describe planetary motion placed the heliocentric cosmology of Copernicus on a sound mathematic basis and proved the way for Newton's work in the next century. In this balanced, clearly written book, Job Kazhamthadam, S.J., examines for the first time the religious, philosophical, and empirical factors that informed Kepler's thought and works and made his discovery possible.
