    A towering figure in intellectual history and one of the fathers of modern astronomy, the great mathematician Johannes Kepler (–) is best known for his discovery of the three laws of planetary motion, which paved the way for a dynamic explanation of the heavenly phenomena.

    A contemporary of Galileo and a forerunner of Isaac Newton, Johannes Kepler () was a pioneering German scientist and a pivotal figure in the history of astronomy. This colorful, well-researched biography brings the man and his scientific discoveries to life, showing how his contributions were every bit as important as those of /5. Kepler's Physical Astronomy is an account of Kepler's reformulation of astronomy as a physical science, and of his successful use of (incorrect) physics as a guide in his astronomical discoveries. It presents the only reliable account of the internal logic of Kepler's so-called first and second laws, showing how and to what extent Kepler thought he had derived them from his physical principles.

Epitome of Copernican Astronomy was read by astronomers throughout Europe, and following Kepler's death, it was the main vehicle for spreading Kepler's ideas. In the period –this book was the most widely used astronomy textbook, winning many converts to ellipse-based astronomy.

[63]Fields: Astronomy, astrology, mathematics and natural. The Linz authorities had anticipated that Kepler would use most of his time to work on and complete the astronomical tables begun by Tycho.

But the work was tedious, and Kepler continued his search for the world harmonies that had inspired him since his youth. In his Harmonice Mundi.

It was the exposition of Robert Small, in An account of the astronomical discoveries of Kepler () that made up the set of three laws, by adding in the third. Small also claimed, against the history, that these were empirical laws, based on inductive reasoning. Johannes Kepler contributed importantly to every field he addressed.

He changed the face of astronomy by abandoning principles that had been in place for two millennia, made important discoveries in optics and mathematics, and was an uncommonly good philosopher.

Generally, however, Kepler's philosophical ideas have been dismissed as irrelevant and even detrimental to his legacy of scientific. Johannes Kepler (), one of the founders of modern astronomy, revolutionized the Copernican heliocentric theory of the universe with his three laws of motion: that the planets move not in circular but elliptical orbits, that their speed is the greatest when nearest the sun, and that the sun and planets form an integrated is the author of Epitome of Copernican Astronomy.
