like many other philosophers who have greatly extended our knowledge of nature, Galileo had a remarkable aptitude for the invention of instruments designed for philosophical research. To facilitate his practical work, we find that in 15 99 he had engaged a skill workman who was to live in his house and be constantly at hand to try the devices, which were forever springing from Galileo's fertile brain. Among the earliest of his inventions appears to have been the thermometer, which he constructed in 16 Oh two. No doubt this apparatus and its primitive form differed in some respects from the Contra Vance we call by the same name. Galileo at first employed water as the agent. Its expansion was the basis of the measure of temperature.
