Nicolas Copernic

Date de naissance: 19. février 1473
Date de décès: 24. mai 1543
Autres noms: Nikolaus Kopernikus

Nicolas Copernic , né le 19 février 1473 à Thorn , Prusse royale et mort le 24 mai 1543 à Frauenburg , est un chanoine, médecin et astronome polonais. Il est célèbre pour avoir développé et défendu la théorie de l'héliocentrisme selon laquelle le Soleil se trouve au centre de l'Univers et la Terre tourne autour de lui contre la croyance répandue que cette dernière était centrale et immobile. Les conséquences de cette théorie dans le changement profond des points de vue scientifique, philosophique et religieux qu'elle impose sont baptisées révolution copernicienne.

Œuvres

„C'est pourquoi nous n'avons aucune honte d'affirmer que tout ce qu'embrasse la lune.“

—  Nicolas Copernic, livre De revolutionibus orbium coelestium

De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (1543)
Original: (la) Proinde non pudet nos fateri hoc totum, quod luna praecingit, ac centrum terrae per orbem illum magnum inter caeteras errantes stellas annua revolutione circa solem transire, et circa ipsum esse centrum mundi; quo etiam sole immobili permanente, quicquid de motu solis apparet, hoc potius in mobilitate terrae verificari: tantam vero esse mundi magnitudinem, ut cum illa terrae a sole distantia ad quoslibet alios orbes errantium syderum magnitudinem habeat pro ratione illarum amplitudinum satis evidentem, ad non errantium stellarum sphaeram collata, non quae appareat : quod facilius concedendum puto quam in infinitam pene orbium multitudine distrahi intellectum, quod coacti sunt facere, qui terram in medio mundi detinuerunt.

„On admettra enfin que le soleil lui-même occupe le centre du monde. Toutes ces choses, c'est la loi de l'ordre dans lequel elles se suivent les unes les autres, ainsi que l'harmonie du monde, qui nous les enseigne, pourvu seulement que nous regardions les choses elles-mêmes pour ainsi dire des deux yeux.“

De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (1543)
Original: (la) Ipse denique sol medium mundi putabitur possidere, quae omnia ratio ordinis, quo illa sibi invicem succedunt, et mundi totius harmonia nos docet, si modo rem ipsam ambobus (ut aiunt) oculis inspiciamus
Source: Le soleil n'occupe pas le centre des mouvements planétaires (pas même le centre des mouvements de la terre) mais le centre de l'Univers, c'est-à-dire, le centre de la sphère des fixes. Le rôle du soleil, dans le système de Copernic est uniquement optique. Il éclaire le monde. Il ne fait pas mouvoir les planètes.

„Car la [raison] principale sur laquelle on s'appuie pour démontrer que le monde est fini, est le mouvement? Et n'admettrions-nous pas que la réalité de cette révolution quotidienne appartient à la terre, et son apparence seulement au ciel!“

De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (1543)
Original: (la) Nam potissimum, quo astruere nituntur mundum esse finitum, est motus. Sive igitur finitus sit mundus, sive infinitus, disputationi physiologorum dimittamus, hoc certum habentes, quod terra verticibus conclusa superficie globosa terminatur. Cur ergo haesitamus adhuc, mobilitatem illi formae suae a natura congruentem concedere, magis quam quod totus labatur mundus, cuius finis ignoratur scirique nequit; neque fateamur ipsius quotidianae revolutionis in caelo apparentiam esse, et in terra veritatem?

„C'est pourquoi, si la dignité des arts était évaluée d'après celle des matières dont ils traitent, celui que certains appellent astronomie, d'autres astrologie, d'autres enfin, parmi les anciens, l'achèvement des mathématiques, serait de beaucoup le plus haut. En effet, celui-ci, le chef de tous les arts de l'esprit, le plus digne de l'homme libre, est porté par presque toutes les espèces des mathématiques.“

De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (1543)
Original: (la) Proinde si artium dignitates penes suam de qua tractant materiam aestimentur, erit haec longe praestantissima, quam alii quidem astronomiam, alii astrologiam, multi vero priscorum mathematices consummationem vocant. Ipsa nimirum ingenuarum artium caput, dignissima homini libero omnibus fere mathematices speciebus fulcitur.

„Et pour que les savants et les ignorants voient pareillement que je ne veux éviter aucunement le jugement de personne, j'ai voulu dédier ces miennes recherches à Ta Sainteté plutôt qu'à tout autre, parce que, même dans ce coin éloigné de la terre où je vis, tu es considéré comme la personne la plus éminente, autant dans l'ordre de la dignité que pour l'amour des lettres et même des mathématiques; afin que, par ton autorité et jugement tu puisses réprimer les morsures des calomniateurs; quoiqu'il soit bien connu qu'il n'y a pas de remède contre la morsure des sycophantes.“

—  Nicolas Copernic, livre De revolutionibus orbium coelestium

Ut vero pariter docti atque indocti viderent, me nullius omnino subterfugere judicium, malui Tuae Sactitati, quam cuiqam alteri, hameas lucubrationes dedicare ; propterea quod et in hoc remotissimo angulo terrae, in quo ego ago, ordinis dignitate et litterarum omnium atque mathematices etiam amore eminentissimus habearis, ut facile tua autoritate et judicio calumniantium morsus reprimere possis, etsi in proverbio sit, non esse remiedium adversus sycophantae morsum.

„Comme donc rien ne s'oppose à la mobilité de la terre, je pense qu'il faut examiner maintenant s'il ne convient pas de lui [attribuer] même plusieurs mouvements, de manière à ce qu'elle puisse être envisagée comme une des planètes.“

„Thus, supposing these motions which I attribute to the earth“

—  Nicolaus Copernicus, livre De revolutionibus orbium coelestium

Preface Letter to Pope Paul III as quoted by Edwin Arthur Burtt in The Metaphysical Foundations of Modern Physical Science (1925)
De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (1543)
Contexte: When, therefore, I had long considered this uncertainty of traditional mathematics, it began to weary me that no more definite explanation of the movement of the world-machine established in our behalf by the best and most systematic builder of all, existed among the philosophers who had studied so exactly in other respects the minutest details in regard to the sphere. Wherefore I took upon myself the task of re-reading the books of all the philosophers which I could obtain, to seek out whether any one had ever conjectured that the motions of the spheres of the universe were other than they supposed who taught mathematics in the schools. And I found first, that, according to Cicero, Nicetas [assumed by modern editors to mean Hicetas] had thought the earth was moved. Then later I discovered, according to Plutarch, that certain others had held the same opinion.... When from this, therefore, I had conceived its possibility, I myself also began to meditate upon the mobility of the earth. And although the opinion seemed absurd, yet because I knew the liberty had been accorded to others before me of imagining whatsoever circles they pleased to explain the phenomena of the stars, I thought I also might readily be allowed to experiment whether, by supposing the earth to have some motion, stronger demonstrations than those of the others could be found as to the revolution of the celestial sphere. Thus, supposing these motions which I attribute to the earth later on in this book, I found at length by much and long observation, that if the motions of the other planets were added to the rotation of the earth and calculated as for the revolution of that planet, not only the phenomena of the others followed from this, but also it so bound together both the order and magnitude of all the planets and the spheres and the heaven itself, that in no single part could one thing be altered without confusion among the other parts and in all the universe. Hence for this reason in the course of this work I have followed this system.

„If perchance there should be foolish speakers who“

—  Nicolaus Copernicus, livre De revolutionibus orbium coelestium

Preface Letter to Pope Paul III as quoted by Edwin Arthur Burtt in The Metaphysical Foundations of Modern Physical Science (1925)
De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (1543)
Contexte: Nor do I doubt that skilled and scholarly mathematicians will agree with me if, what philosophy requires from the beginning, they will examine and judge, not casually but deeply, what I have gathered together in this book to prove these things.... Mathematics is written for mathematicians, to whom these my labours, if I am not mistaken, will appear to contribute something.... What... I may have achieved in this, I leave to the decision of your Holiness especially, and to all other learned mathematicians.... If perchance there should be foolish speakers who, together with those ignorant of all mathematics, will take it upon themselves to decide concerning these things, and because of some place in the Scriptures wickedly distorted to their purpose, should dare to assail this my work, they are of no importance to me, to such an extent do I despise their judgment as rash.

„Nor could they elicit or deduce from the eccentrics the principal consideration, that is, the structure of the universe and the true symmetry of its parts.“

—  Nicolaus Copernicus, livre De revolutionibus orbium coelestium

Preface Letter to Pope Paul III, Tr. E. Rosen, De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium (1978) pp. 4-7.
De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (1543)
Contexte: Those who devised the eccentrics seen thereby in large measure to have solved the problem of apparent motions with approximate calculations. But meanwhile they introduced a good many ideas which apparently contradict the first principles of uniform motion. Nor could they elicit or deduce from the eccentrics the principal consideration, that is, the structure of the universe and the true symmetry of its parts. On the contrary, their experience was just like someone taking from various places hands, feet, a head, and other pieces, very well depicted it may be, but for the representation of a single person; since these fragments would not belong to one another at all, a monster rather than a man would be put together from them.

„So vast, without any question, is the divine handiwork of the most excellent Almighty.“

—  Nicolaus Copernicus, livre De revolutionibus orbium coelestium

End of Ch. 10<!-- quoted in The Advancement of Science, and Its Burdens (1986) by p. 232 -->; the "Congregation of the Index" (the official inquisition censors) declared<!-- on 15 May 1620 --> that the last sentence of this statement was one of eleven passages which should be removed from the work, in this case because it was perceived as implying that God designed things in accord with the Copernican system, rather than that of Ptolemy.
De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (1543)
Contexte: The forward and backward arcs appear greater in Jupiter than in Saturn and smaller than in Mars, and on the other hand greater in Venus than in Mercury. This reversal in direction appears more frequently in Saturn than in Jupiter, and also more rarely in Mars and Venus than in Mercury. Moreover, when Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars rise at sunset, they are nearer to the earth than when they set in the evening or appear at a later hour. But Mars in particular, when it shines all night, seems to equal Jupiter in size, being distinguished only by its reddish color. Yet in the other configurations it is found barely among the stars of the second magnitude, being recognized by those who track it with assiduous observations. All these phenomena proceed from the same cause, which is the earth's motion.
Yet none of these phenomena appears in the fixed stars. This proves their immense height, which makes even the sphere of the annual motion, or its reflection, vanish from before our eyes. For, every visible object has some measure of distance beyond which it is no longer seen, as is demonstrated in optics. From Saturn, the highest of the planets, to the sphere of the fixed stars there is an additional gap of the largest size. This is shown by the twinkling lights of the stars. By this token in particular they are distinguished from the planets, for there had to be a very great difference between what moves and what does not move. So vast, without any question, is the divine handiwork of the most excellent Almighty.

„Mathematics is written for mathematicians“

—  Nicolaus Copernicus

Translation as quoted in The Gradual Acceptance of the Copernican Theory of the Universe (1917) by Dorothy Stimson, p. 115
Contexte: If perchance there should be foolish speakers who, together with those ignorant of all mathematics, will take it upon themselves to decide concerning these things, and because of some place in the Scriptures wickedly distorted to their purpose, should dare to assail this my work, they are of no importance to me, to such an extent do I despise their judgment as rash. For it is not unknown that Lactantius, the writer celebrated in other ways but very little in mathematics, spoke somewhat childishly of the shape of the earth when he derided those who declared the earth had the shape of a ball. So it ought not to surprise students if such should laugh at us also. Mathematics is written for mathematicians to whom these our labors, if I am not mistaken, will appear to contribute something even to the ecclesiastical state the headship of which your Holiness now occupies.

„Thus indeed, as though seated on a royal throne, the sun governs the family of planets revolving around it.“

—  Nicolaus Copernicus, livre De revolutionibus orbium coelestium

Alternate translation: Then in the middle of all stands the sun. For who, in our most beautiful temple, could set this light in another or better place, than that from which it can at once illuminate the whole? Not to speak of the fact that not unfittingly do some call it the light of the world, others the soul, still others the governor. Tremigistus calls it the visible God; Sophocles' Electra, the All-seer. And in fact does the sun, seated on his royal throne, guide his family of planets as they circle round him.
Book 1, Ch. 10, Alternate translation as quoted in Edwin Arthur Burtt in The Metaphysical Foundations of Modern Physical Science (1925)
De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (1543)
Contexte: At rest, however, in the middle of everything is the sun. For, in this most beautiful temple, who would place this lamp in another or better position than that from which it can light up the whole thing at the same time? For, the sun is not inappropriately called by some people the lantern of the universe, its mind by others, and its ruler by still others. The Thrice Greatest labels it a visible god, and Sophocles' Electra, the all-seeing. Thus indeed, as though seated on a royal throne, the sun governs the family of planets revolving around it.

„I am not so enamored of my own opinions that I disregard what others may think of them.

Preface
De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (1543)
Original: (la) Neque enim ita mihi mea placent, ut non perpendam, quid alii de illis iudicaturi sint. Et quamvis sciam, hominis philosophi cogitationes esse remotas à iudicio vulgi, propterea quòd illius studium sit veritatem omnibus in rebus, quatenus id à Deo rationi humanæ permissum est, inquirere, tamen alienas prorsus à rectitudine opiniones fugiendas censeo. Itaque cum mecum ipse cogitarem, quàm absurdum ἀκρόαμα existimaturi essent illi, qui multorum seculorum iudiciis hanc opinionem confirmatam norunt, quòd terra immobilis in medio cœli, tanquam centrum illius posita sit, si ego contra assererem terram moveri...

I am aware that a philosopher's ideas are not subject to the judgment of ordinary persons, because it is his endeavor to seek the truth in all things, to the extent permitted to human reason by God. Yet I hold that completely erroneous views should be shunned. Those who know that the consensus of many centuries has sanctioned the conception that the earth remains at rest in the middle of the heaven as its center would, I reflected, regard it as an insane pronouncement if I made the opposite assertion that the earth moves.
