Caption: Aristotelian worldview. Woodcut depicting a diagram of the Aristotelian view of the structure of the Universe. Here the Earth is at centre, surrounded by the vault of the stars. Beyond this lies an infinite region of chaos. This woodcut illustration comes from Disquisitiones mathematicae by Christoph Scheiner, published at Ingolstadt in 1614.
