Based on insightful observations and daring hypotheses, Leonardo da Vinci was among the first to hold that Earth has a long history marked by continuous transformations. In his view, these changes could create environmental conditions that would make life of humans and animals impossible. This talk will explore Leonardo's understanding of the geocosm in his notebooks, including the Codex Leicester. Where did Leonardo get his ideas about nature and time, and how did they evolve?
