    This is an enjoyable excursion into 17th century ideas about the constitution and potential for life in the solar system Written in light of telescopic observation and general knowledge about the period and spatial arrangement of the visible planets including the then newly discovered satellites of Jupiter and Saturn It is light on technical detail and heavy on speculation but gives a sense of the view of the world fr

Summary Meskun Dünyaların Çokluğu

Surveying the night sky a charming philosopher and his hostess the Maruise are considering thep ossibility of travelers from the moon What if they were skillful enough to navigate on the outer surface of our air and from there through their curiosity to see us they angled for us like fish Would that please you asks the philosopher Why not the Maruise replies As for me I'd put myself into their nets of my own volition just to have the pleasure of seeing those who caught meIn this imaginary conversation of three hundred A concoction of exaggerated Copernican scientific views on the cosmos presented through a fictitious setting A 17th look at astronomy A rather interesting read for those thus inclined I listened to an audio version with varied readers

Years ago readers can share the excitement of a new extremely daring view of the uinverse Conversations on the Plurality of Worlds Entretiens sur la pluralité des mondes first published in 1686 is one of the best loved classics of the early French enlightenment Through a series of informal dialogues that take place on successive evenings in the maruise's moonlit gardens Fontenelle describes the new cosmology of the Copernican world view with matchles clarity imagination and wit Moreover he boldly makes his interlocuto I was curious to read this after hearing it referred to as one of the first known popular science books this must depend on how you define science as well as popular science Written in 1686 one year before Newton s Principia was published it beautifully lays out a Copernican view of the solar system and beyond through a dialogue with an aristocratic woman untrained in science de Fontenelle takes the Copernican worldview one step further and argues that because the Earth is not a special place every other planet and moon must be inhabited and he successively speculates on what the world is like from the point of view of citizens of each planet The sense of wonder and curiosity about other life gives this the flavor of an early form of science fiction The book also gives an interesting glimpse of what astronomers and philosophers understood about universe at that time as well as where they were mistaken for example de Fontanelle still believed in vortices carrying the planets along instead of forces and didn t realize that we are part of the Milky WayIt is interesting to observe de Fontanelle s caution in sidestepping theological issues to placate the censors For instance he takes a detour at the beginning to argue that the life on other planets is unlikely to be human thus there is no conflict with man being descended from Adam and EveThe book also seems surprisingly feminist for the time The protagonist is a woman and it is made clear that women are viewed as being capable of the reason necessary to understand science In multiple places the Maruise contradicts her teacher who acknowledges that she has made a compelling argument and he is wrong On the other hand the treatment of race is not so forward thinking It is shocking and eye opening to see what blatantly racist ideas were mainstream at the time and how they were mixed into scientific arguments to make a certain point And of course the book is uite predictably Eurocentric although the irony of writing an entire book arguing how our planet can t be a special place in the universe yet ending with a declaration that Europe is the best place on the planet seems to have been lost on people of the time
