On the Unification of Physical Theories
From antiquity down to the Renaissance, “theories” advanced for the explanation of the behavior of nature were based on the assumption of existing harmonies—harmonies of numbers, spheres, and other geometrical figures. Kepler was still of that opinion when he wrote his famous Harmonices mundi. All such attempts can be considered as aiming at a unifying view of the world of physical (especially celestial) bodies and systems.
