  • L'introduction d'un systeme heliocentrique par Copernic etait a l'epoque consideree comme revolutionnaire pour la cosmologie traditionnelle et apparait comme etant un evenement globalement marquant de l'histoire des sciences. Mais quelle etait la base de la recherche qui a abouti a l'heliocentrisme ? L'auteur explore les raisons qui ont pousse Copernic a rejeter les principes relatifs aux distances cosmiques et au systeme geocentrique dans lequel ils etaient ancres.
