These times were marked by a humanistic revival of classical influence expressed in a flowering of the arts and literature and by the beginnings of modern science . The next steps in the evolution of the Western world were the Enlightenment and Scientific Revolution . In this essay we should answer the question about the links between the ideas of the Renaissance and Scientific Revolution luminaries [banner_entry_middle]

. We should understand were there the processes of the evolution discrete or continuous and how this succession was realized

The luminaries of the Scientific Revolution found that the ancient thinkers had been gravely mistaken in their explanation of the universe New evidence-based truths were found in the practical sciences , such as biology , mathematics , chemistry , physics , and astronomy . Luminaries of Scientific Revolution , such as Francis Bacon or Rene Descartes were true Renaissance men . They were universal scientists and produced works in the different fields of human knowledge and art . They lived in the late Renaissance and developed the new methods of arriving at Truth Francis Bacon ‘s scientific method was based on trial and error , rather than on the metaphysical ideas of the Middle Ages . The most significant advancement of this method was that thinkers began to observe their surroundings , and they carried out experiments in order to prove or explain natural phenomena . Rene Descartes was the founder of another scientific approach – the rationalism . The rationalism is the idea that the complexities of nature can be comprehended by the power of reason

Bacon ‘s and Descartes ‘ concepts were derivated from ideas of the Renaissance but they were more practical than humanistic . Humanistic view of the nature was based on the spiritual creation that was not governed by laws or mathematics . Luminaries of the Scientific Revolution revived practical sciences . Thus they are often grasped as thinkers of early Enlightenment , instead of late Renaissance ones
