Galileo and the Rhetoric of Relativity.
Machamer, Peter
Science and Education, v8 n2 p111-20 Mar 1999
Galileo fit in well with the neo-Protagorian, person-relative framework that was emerging around him in the late 16th and early 17th centuries in Western Europe. For Galileo, all knowledge depended crucially and essentially on first person experience, and at the same time this knowledge was objective, not subjective. Comments on the educational implications of this tension. (Author/WRM)
