The Achievement of Johannes Kepler

General evaluation of achievements of Johannes Kepler. While Kepler is popularly known as the discoverer of the elliptical orbit--particularly important in this space age--his role as founder of modern optics and his contributions in a number of other disciplines are seldom mentioned, largely because many of his accomplishments are shrouded in his idiosyncratic Latin and obsolete German. Fellow has published two books on more specialized aspects of Kepler's thought--Kepler's Conversation with Galileo's Sidereal (1965) and Kepler's Somnium (1967). In 1968, received the Charles Pfizer Prize from the History of Science Society for his work on Kepler.
