Im working on a English exercise and need support.
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.
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?
AND RESPOND TO THIS POST:
RE: Week 1 | Discussion
Professor McGeehan and Class,
Was this mentioned in our text or did you find it mentioned in a website? Our text this week led me to research the internet, leading to find this: https://www.enchantedlearning.com/inventors/page/c/caravel.shtml
What invention would you create if you lived in this time period? Leading up to 1400, there was the invention of a crossbow, gun powder, a gun then a handgun, then in 1400 was the trigger mechanism. So I would probably be interested in inventing something along the lines of firearms, providing a honed instrument for hunting and self-defense.
How is his painting technique different from the other person of the week? I am not an art analyst, maybe this course will give me that edgeJ, however my perception of Rembrandts techniques differ from Caravaggio would amount to details and how each individual perceives and understands the uniquenesss (and this could be based on my references). According to me, between these two; you have an artist that wants to be seen and one that wants to show scenes. Thanks, Erik.
