    schema:reviewBody ""Chronicling the six intense years that transformed Galileo Galilei from an obscure mathematics professor running a student boardinghouse in Padua to a defendant in the Church's case against Copernicanism, Galileo's Instruments of Credit proposes radical new interpretations of several famous episodes of Galileo's career - the telescopic discoveries of 1610, the dispute on sunspots, and his early defense of Copernicanism from the theologians' censures - and in the process shows how Galileo's complex tactics shifted as rapidly as his circumstances. Mario Biagioli traces the legendary Italian scientist's moves through the world of artisans and engineers as well as those of the courtiers and Inquisition tribunals to show that while he was producing and defending new instruments, new claims, and new forms of textual and pictorial argumentation, Galileo was actively constructing markets and audiences for them."--Jacket." ;
