Enlightenment satirists such as Voltaire shredded the old mercantile system. The individualism of Enlightenment thinkers helped disprove socialism. The writings of Adam Smith set forth the theory of that economic system.

User: How might Leonardo da Vinci's sketches of the human body, such as the one above, have inspired later scientists? His depictions of the human form made subsequent dissections unnecessary. The sketches showed that the human body could be studied as a system, using scientific principles. His depictions of the human form emphasized that it was a simple subject to study. The sketches popularized the scientific study of anatomy among common people.

Weegy: For Leonardo, however, these microcosm-macrocosm analogies are more than outmoded comparisons belonging to a pre scientific age. [ They lead him to compare his study of the body and Ptolemy's study of the earth, and consequently to use Ptolemy's method in the Geography as a starting point for his own systematic study of anatomy. ]

User: How did humanism contribute to the Scientific Revolution? Humanism was embraced by the Catholic Church, which sponsored humanist scientists. Humanism inspired the idea that knowledge could be gained through the evidence provided by human senses and reasoning. Humanism cast doubt on Christian beliefs, inspiring many Christians to use scientific research to prove their faith. The Church's persecution of humanists inspired a backlash that became the Scientific Revolution.

Weegy: Humanism inspired the idea that knowledge could be gained through the evidence provided by human senses and reasoning.
