30th October 2014

Hello I'm Rodrigo!

Today in the class of Social Sciences the teacher Paqui has showed a video  (posted by Amalia), the video talks about the 17th century in England, how kings received their power,

We have seen some photos of the Sant's Paul Cathedral of Chistopher Wren, he drew inspiration from  of San Peter Basilica in Rome. And we have talked about Iñigo Jones who was the first significant British architect of the early modern period, he made Banqueting House in England

Then we have spoken about the empiricism , of Galileo Galilei, who was a scientist who defended the most important theory, the heliocentric theory ( the planets turn around the Sun). The Catholic Inquisition Catholic said: if you don't recant you will kill you. And he had to recant, but he said EPPUR SI MUOVE: However it moves


EPPUR SI MUOVE: However it moves

After Empiricism, we have spoken about Rationalism… we have concluded that if you have a doubt, this is the best way to learn, this was stated by René Descartes and it’s summarized on his quote COGITO ERGO SUM: I think, therefore I exist

We have talked about if the animals think about their existence , their lied of his life... Later we have written some scientifics of the 17th century like Francis Baron, Isaac Newton, Nicholas Copernicus Johannes Kepler and Gottfried Leibniz. All this people lived in protenstant countries. This is not casual. The Protestant religious gave more freedom and more progress in scientific than  Catholic religious. In the Inquisition Catholic the progress in scientific was inexistence because Inquisition Catholic go to their house and chosed them. They said that the Earth is the center of the universe, because it's created by God. Dogma is rigid and you can't change it. 

Other features of this period, were the Royal Academies ( sponsored by the king ). For example the Royal Academy of Language, Art or Sciences in France ( 18th century) and the Royal Society in Great Britain. 

Then we have copied an scheme of the Baroque art ( chronology, general features, architecture, sculpture, painting).

And finally we have spoken about the proyect, we have to write a text of two works of architecture, sculpture or painting, including chronology, who was author the , Baroque features. The teacher has said that she has to write a post with all the information. 

The teacher said that we have to do the scheme because she will check it..

Some vocabulary: 

- Proof: prueba
- To recant : retractarse
- Royal Academy: Real Academia
- Grand Tour: Gran Tour

Hello,

These are my corrections:

-the teacher Paqui has showed a video …The video I showed was posted by Amalia, not by José

-There is a mistake of content here: the coliseum that started in this period in England... This sentence is wrong. The video talked about the Grand Tour, a trip many rich people from England did to Greece and Rome to visit the ruins, as you say later. It doesn’t have anything to do with building a Coliseum in England. Erase this

- trip

-We have seen… “Showed” means “mostrar, enseñar”.

- (the) Sant Paul’s Cathedral Chistopher Wren, he drew inspiration from San Peter’s Basilica in Rome. And we have talked about Iñigo Joneswho was the first significant British architect of the early modern period, he made Banqueting House in England

-… of Galileo Galilei, who was a scientist who defended the most important theory, the heliocentric theory ( the planets turn around the Sun). The Catholic Inquisition Catholic said: if you don't recant you will kill you. And he had to recant, but he said EPPUR SI MUOVE: However it moves

-You should write: After Empiricism, we have spoken about Rationalism… we have concluded that if you have a doubt, this is the best way to learn, this was stated by René Descartes and it’s summarized on his quote COGITO ERGO SUM: I think, therefore I exist,

- I don’t understand this sentence: their lied of his life...

-…scientists of the 17th century… All these people lived in Protestant…. The Protestant religion gave more freedom and this allowedmore progress in science than in the Catholic countries, where due to the control of the Inquisition the progress in science was inexistentt, because the Inquisition chased those who contradicted dogma

-Dogma is rigid….

-Other features of this period were the Royal Academies ( sponsored by the king ). For example the Royal Academy of Language…

-And finally we have spoken about the project

-… who the author was, Baroque features. The teacher has said that she has to write a post with all the information.

-… because she WILL CHECK IT.

That’s all. The content is OK, but you should review before posting, because there are some spelling mistakes you could have avoided.

Bye!
