Example text

Although such concepts as the proper visual principles of the body or temple of the universe and the role of man as the 'mean and measure of all things' are deeply shared by the two sciences of 1543, the relationship of the overall vision and the illustration of the phenomena was necessarily quite different in each discipline. Any Copernican could not but be aware of the obvious problem that what we actually 'see' is the sun rising, moving across the skies, and setting. We may understand the point of relativity, but, in terms of how our perception actually works, our eyes and body do not bear obvious witness to the motion of the earth.

Figure 13. (Right) Petrus Apianus, Torquetum, woodcut, from Cosmographicus tiber (Landshut, 1524). Instruments such as armillary spheres, orbaria and torqueta, as illustrated by Apianus (fig. 13), could provide aids to spatial understanding in a way that was impossible with Copernicus' illustrations, although the schematic orbits could still only deal with the rudiments of the system rather than the fuH complexity of apparent motions. 52 Most instruments were not of course direct attempts to model the celestial machine in fuHy spatial terms, but a number may be seen as serving as kinds of analogue models.
