Piece by history’s Aviva Rothman appears in Physics Today

A short piece by Aviva Rothman, assistant professor in the Department of History, appeared in an issue of Physics Today. Titled “Johannes Kepler’s pursuit of harmony,” the piece is adapted from Rothman’s book titled The Pursuit of Harmony: Kepler on Cosmos, Confession, and Community (University of Chicago Press, 2017).

Rothman’s piece focuses on the ways that Kepler connected his musical and cosmological vision of harmony to the harmonious interaction of humans on Earth during a time of religious warfare.
