3. A mathematical science The science of finding latitude science . This is because its meaning and reference, as we understand them, became current only in the mid-19th century. William Whewell is credited with inventing the word scientist in 1833. The historian’s problem, then, is the discomfort of trying often to write the history of something that did not exist, at least nominally, for people at the time.

Unfortunately, the Ptolemaic system has suffered from bad press, which has given the false impression that the system was unnecessarily complicated.
