Description

The oration by Niccolò Aggiunti (who was one of Galileo's disciples and the successor of Benedetto Castelli as professor of mathematics in Pisa since 1626), held in front of the Tuscan princes, deals with a strong defence of Galileo Galilei mainly based on two points: a radical critic towards Aristotle and Aristotelianism by a cultural point of view as well as a strong defence of the employment of vernacular languages in scientific and philosophical disciplines
