10 While I have epitomized Galileo as the man whose thought marks the boundary between ancient or medieval and modern science, I think it is important to realize that he, like Newton after him, was "standing on the shoulders of giants." For accounts of Galileo’s intellectual precursors, see, for example: E. J. Dijksterhuis, The Mechanization of the World Picture, trans. C. Dikshoorn (Oxford: Oxford Univ. Press, 1961).
