Product description


"Based on the Antonio Favaro Italian editions of 1890-1909 and the original text of 1632, this new masterpiece focuses on the Copernican controversy and surrounding scientific and philosophical issues." --"Renaissance Quarterly

From the Inside Flap

“A classic introduction to Galileo’s masterpiece.”—William A. Wallace, author of Galileo’s Logic of Discovery and Proof

"This is an outstanding contribution to the literature of seventeenth-century science."
--Robert Westman, University of California at San Diego
"The Galileo Affair should be required reading for everyone who values freedom and fears censorship. The extraordinary virtue of this collection of documents edited by Maurice A. Finocchiaro is that is presents both sides of the dispute."
--Alan M. Dershowitz, Harvard Law School
"A highly readable sourcebook, the like of which does not exist."
--Karl H. Dannenfeldt, History: Reviews of New Books
