(p.17) * 1 * Kepler Sets the Earth in Motion
Fictions of the Cosmos
University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines Johannes Kepler's book about the movement of Earth called Dream. It suggests that this book is inseparable from the context of an abstract space of hypotheses and that it belongs to the Keplerian enterprise of defending Copernicanism. This chapter contends that the book's enunciative strategy can be seen in its ridiculing of one vision of the world before demonstrating a new one.

Keywords:   Dream, Johannes Kepler, Earth, abstract space, Copernicanism
