Answer questions 1, 3, 4, and 6 on paper.  Short answer format answering all parts of the question and siting the sources as you go.  Then go to the chalkup.co site and discuss questions 2 and 5:

  1. What were the main ways in which the science of the 17th century constituted a break form the past? What were some of the main problems facing 17th century scientists in making this break? How did they handle this?
  2. How would you explain the occurrence of the Scientific revolution in the 17th century instead of the 16th or 18th?
  3. What core of ideas and attitudes most clearly connects Enlightenment thinkers as revealed in these sources? How do these ideas relate to 18th century society and institutions
  4. What policies would an 18th century ruler have to pursue to fit the the greatest degree the ideas and assumptions of Enlightenment thinkers?What stood in the way of some monarchs who wanted to be more enlightened?
  5. What attitudes and ideas of enlightenment thinkers do you think remain valid for the problems facing today’s world? What enlightenment ideas an attitudes no longer seem valid or appropriate/
  6. In what ways to the sources support the argument that together, the Scientific Revolution and the Enlightenment constitute a single intellectual revolution of great long-term significance?

(A GOOD DISCUSSION WILL INVOLVE MULTIPLE RESPONSES TO EACH PROMPT AND A CONVERSATION AMONGST YOU AND YOUR CLASSMATES.  THIS MEANS YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO GO BACK AND CHECK FOR REPLIES.)
