Girolamo Cardano: 1501–1576 Physician, Natural Philosopher, by Markus Fierz

By Markus Fierz

HIS research OF GIROLAMO CARDANO is the T paintings of an novice within the box of the historical past of technological know-how and the background of rules. As a mathematical physi­ cist I lack the intensity of teaching in philological-historical disciplines essential to talk about the resources of vehicle­ dano's wisdom and hint the impacts that formed his perspectives on technological know-how, drugs, and philosophy. What little contemporary literature on Cardano there's a few­ instances exhibits a scarcity of actual figuring out, or is basically an appreciation of the mathematician. I relied, for this reason, principally on his personal writings, that are gathered within the Opera Omnia. My excerpts and translations are taken di­ rectly from those works, and that i desire that i've got succeeded in shooting their crucial which means and spirit. MARKUS FIERZ Preface to the English variation THANK the writer Birkhauser Boston, Incorpo­ I rated, for the enterprise of this English version of my essay on Cardano that initially seemed within the Poly sequence released via Birkhauser Verlag, and for the care given to the interpretation. For this variation i've got further longer sections: one on Cardano's voyage to Scotland, and one other on a slightly attention-grabbing "mathematical theosophy" contained in his Liber de Proportionibus (Basel, 1570). additionally integrated is an inventory of references quoted within the notes, and a record-as whole as possible-of the unique variants of Cardano' s writings.
