In a startling reinterpretation of the evidence, Stillman Drake advances the hypothesis that Galileos trial and condemnation by the Inquisition was caused not by his defiance of the Church, but by the hostility of contemporary philosophers. Galileos own beautifully lucid arguments are used to show how his scientific method was utterly divorced from the Aristotelian approach to physics in that it was based on a search not for causes but for laws. Galileos method was of overwhelming significance for the development of modern physics, and led to a final parting of the ways between science and philosophy.
