HUM 112 Week 1 Discussion STR

Week One Discussion:  Science and Society and Technology

Read Chapters 21 and 22, listen to the lectures, look at the power points, and post an original reply to both of the following questions.  Post early in the week and reply to at least one classmate’s post with thoughtful details.   **Each weekly discussion is worth 20 points. Take your time and give us as much insight and detail as you can. **

  1.  Identify a scientific discovery or invention from the 1400s to 1600s and explain what impact it had on society at the time it was discovered or invented.  Refer to the text or a website as a source. Before posting, read over what your classmates have chosen and try to choose a different invention.  What would you have invented if you lived in this time period?
  2. Each week you will get to choose the most important “person of the week.”  For week one, your  choices are Caravaggio, an artist who uses light and dark in his paintings of biblical scenes for dramatic effect, and Rembrandt, who is known for his magnificent and realistic self-portraits.  Look at the pictures in our text and at these links and then choose one artist you feel is more important.

Caravaggio:  http://www.artble.com/artists/caravaggio  Here are some details from that website:   Caravaggio’s works constitute some of the most stunning works in the entire history of Western painting. Observing the evolution of his style from his early works (The Fortune Teller, Bacchus and Narcissus) to his major successes (The Calling of Saint Matthew and Doubting Thomas) to his final paintings (David with the Head of Goliath) is like watching the tumultuous ups and downs of his life.

Rembrandt:  http://www.rembrandtpainting.net

Here are some details from that website:   No artist has left a loftier or more penetrating personal testament than Rembrandt van Rijn. In more than 90 portraits of himself that date from the outset of his career in the 1620s to the year of his death in 1669, he created an autobiography in art that is the equal of the finest ever produced in literature even of the intimately analytical Confessions of St. Augustine.   Who is the more important artist of these two men, in your opinion, and why?
