The discussion of what really makes a scientific revolution happen was interesting to me. To discuss the qualities of a scientist participating in a revolutionary discovery as well as the cultural background necessary for a society to experience it was something I haven’t thought of before. Specifically, I liked the debate we had about the word, “genius”. Not all of the people who made these discoveries of elements during this “chemical revolution” of sorts were considered geniuses. A lot of them simply had the money or the time to dedicate to looking. It’s interesting to apply this to today’s world and be aware of it.
