The experimental method shows that the optimal solution is the new constructive version of planetary gears with floating solar gear.
Boyle and Newton drew on a well-developed experimental tradition and corpuscular matter theory derived from thirteenth-century Aristotelian alchemy and fused with Paracelsian spagyrical methods: it was seventeenth-century alchemy and iatrochemistry that provided them with the materialist theoretical basis and quantitative experimental methods on which to develop a replacement for Aristotle's substantial forms, not the Cartesian clockwork mechanism and Gassendian atomism.
Roger Bacon, who is credited with the introduction of experimental method, acquired his scientific training in the Muslim universities of Spain.
By the later 1800s, the experimental method had won the day, a victory that did not end contention among experts, however, but shifted conflicts about the biological consequences of pollution onto empirical and statistical grounds.
For all of Truman Collins' vision in fiscal and personnel management, the heart of his dream was an experimental method of selecting trees for harvest.
