Item description for The Age of Two-Faced Janus: The Comets of 1577 and 1618 and the Decline of the Aristotelian World View in the Netherlands (Brill's Studies in Intellectual History) by Tabitta Van Nouhuys...

This volume deals with the Latin and vernacular tracts published in the Netherlands on the comets of 1577 and 1618. Central to the book is the question of how these cometary appearances influenced the Aristotelian world view. Chapters on the historiography of cometology and the nature of 16th-century Aristotelianism are followed by a detailed examination of the Netherlandish authors' views on the nature and constitution of the universe. In the final chapter, their opinions on cometary prognostication are evaluated, and are linked to contemporary political developments. This is a lengthy examination of the decline of Aristotelian cosmology in the Netherlands. It demonstrates the connection between cosmological and political views, making it useful to historians of general Dutch history, as well as to historians of science.
