Galileo, Plato and the Scientific Revolution

Giorgio Matteoli

Abstract


This paper retraces the history of one of the founding thesis of modern historiography of science (the Galileo’s Platonism thesis), starting from its first appearance in the context of the Neo-Kantian school of Marburg up to its final assessment in the works of Koyré. Following these debates provides us with a privileged point of view to observe the emergence of the concept of scientific revolution, which appeared for the first times in the current usage in Koyré’s Galileo Studies.
