    Scientific Revolution, drastic change in scientific thought that took place during the 16th and 17th centuries.A new view of nature emerged during the Scientific Revolution, replacing the Greek view that had dominated science for almost 2, years.

Snow in the Rede lecture, delivered in Cambridge on 9 March , and entitled, ‘The two cultures and the scientific revolution’.
