Renaissance Cosmology

Dean's Seminar: Renaissance Cosmology

Dr Dilwyn Knox is a Reader in Renaissance Studies at the Department of Italian at University College London, University of London. He was awarded the University of London Research Fellowship at the School of Advanced Study between January and April 2009.

Dr Knox's published articles establish previously unappreciated sources for Copernicus's son non-Aristotelian account of gravity, making a substantially original contribution on a major issue in the history of science. Dr Knox has been able to restore Copernicus's place in the cosmological revolution of the sixteenth centuray and an original account of the role of that revolution in the rise of early modern science.
