The passage below is from a work written and published by Galileo in 1623. Use the passage to answer the following question: "Philosophy is written in the great book of the universe which lies always open. But we must first understand the language and the character in which it is written. That language is mathematics. Its characters are triangles, circles, and other geometric figures, without which we cannot, humanly speaking, understand the words, and wander aimlessly through a dark labyrinth."—Galileo, Il Saggiatore (The Assayer), 1623 Source: Ruoff, Henry W. (ed). "Masters of Achievement: The World's Greatest Leaders in Literature, Art, Religion, Philosoph, Science, Politics, and Industry." In what sense is the passage a challenge to medieval views and methods? Galileo used mathematics to understand the universe, but scholars of the Middle Ages believed that knowledge came from God. Galileo used books for understanding, while scholars of the Middle Ages considered the use of books for knowledge to be dangerous. Scholars of the Middle Ages said that one could not understand the universe, while Galileo said that this understanding was possible. Galileo saw science and philosophy as one and the same, while scholars of the Middle Ages saw them as two different things.
