The emerging pattern led Kepler to
the idea of nested polyhedra. Kepler failed to inform his readers on what he
drew his triangles and, consequently, few scholars thought it necessary to
speculate on the nature of such a surface. Seeking to redress such neglect, the
talk seeks to underscore the importance of classroom 'furniture' for better
appreciation of the contribution of early modern institutions of higher
learning to the dissemination and advancement of scientific knowledge.
Mordechai Feingold is the Van Nuys Professor of the History of Science and the Humanities at Caltech.
