About the Book

The Gradual Acceptance of the Copernican Theory of the Universe is a historical work by Dorothy Stimson. The book chronicles the development and acceptance of the heliocentric model of the solar system, which was proposed by Nicolaus Copernicus in the 16th century. Stimson traces the evolution of the Copernican theory from its origins in ancient Greek astronomy to its eventual acceptance by the scientific community in the 17th century. She examines the social, political, and religious factors that influenced the reception of the theory, as well as the scientific evidence and arguments that ultimately convinced astronomers of its validity. The book provides a detailed and fascinating account of a pivotal moment in the history of science, and it offers insights into the process of scientific discovery and the challenges faced by scientists in communicating new ideas to their peers and the wider world.

About Author

Dorothy Stimson

Dorothy Stimson was an American scholar who lived from October 10, 1890, to September 19, 1988. From 1921 to 1947, she was the head of Goucher College, and from 1947 until 1955, she taught history there. Between 1953 and 1957, Stimson was the head of the History of Science Society. Her research looked at how the Copernican theory was received. She also put together a book of papers by George Sarton, who is thought to be the person who started the study of the history of science. Henry Albert Stimson and Alice Wheaton had Stimson on October 10, 1890, in St. Louis, Missouri. She was the granddaughter of a former president of Dartmouth College, and she was related to Henry L. Stimson, who was the former secretary of war for the United States. In 1912, Stimson got his Bachelor of Arts from Vassar College. Later, she went to school at Columbia University and got a master's degree in 1913 and a doctorate in 1917. The Gradual Acceptance of the Copernican Theory of the Universe was the title of her dissertation. James Harvey Robinson told Stimson to look into this subject, so he did. From 1921 to 1947, Stimson was the dean of women at Goucher College. She was also a history teacher at Goucher for a long time.
