Sixteenth-century astrologers serving princes and generals spoke of “revolution” to desig­nate abrupt and unforeseen events determined by the conjunction of planets-that is, by forces beyond human control. Thus the original sci­entific meaning of the word, conveying regularity and repetitiveness, came, when referring to human affairs, to signify the very opposite, namely, the sudden and unpredictable.
