Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Copernicus and the Aristotelian Tradition contains the table of contents, a list of illustrations, the preface, the acknowledgements, and the introduction. The book is divided into three parts. Parts I and II argue that in Cracow Copernicus achieved some competence in astronomy and scholastic philosophy in the Aristotelian tradition. Part III abandons the biographical approach of the first two parts and turns to an analysis of Copernicus as philosopherthe logic of his arguments, his views on natural philosophy, and, finally, his mathematical cosmology. This part treats De revolutionibus more extensively.

Keywords: Aristotelian tradition; Cracow Copernicus
