The Principia: Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy Isaac Newton I. Bernard Cohen Anne Whitman In his monumental 1687 work Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica, known familiarly as the Principia, Isaac Newton laid out in mathematical terms the principles of time, force, and motion that have guided the development of modern physical science Even after than three centuries and the revolutions of Einsteinian relativity and quantum mechanics, Newtonian phyIn his monumental 1687 work Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica, known familiarly as the Principia, Isaac Newton laid out in mathematical terms the principles of time, force, and motion that have guided the development of modern physical science Even after than three centuries and the revolutions of Einsteinian relativity and quantum mechanics, Newtonian physics continues to account for many of the phenomena of the observed world, and Newtonian celestial dynamics is used to determine the orbits of our space vehicles.This completely new translation, the first in 270 years, is based on the third 1726 edition, the final revised version approved by Newton it includes extracts from the earlier editions, corrects errors found in earlier versions, and replaces archaic English with contemporary prose and up to date mathematical forms Newton s principles describe acceleration, deceleration, and inertial movement fluid dynamics and the motions of the earth, moon, planets, and comets A great work in itself, the Principia also revolutionized the methods of scientific investigation It set forth the fundamental three laws of motion and the law of universal gravity, the physical principles that account for the Copernican system of the world as emended by Kepler, thus effectively ending controversy concerning the Copernican planetary system.The illuminating Guide to the Principia by I Bernard Cohen, along with his and Anne Whitman s translation, will make this preeminent work truly accessible for today s scientists, scholars, and students.

One thought on “The Principia: Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy

  1. Ted

    Of course I have never read the entire text of this monumental work I did read several parts of it in the period 1972 1974 when I was studying the History Philosophy of Science at the University of Melbourne, and still have the two volume paperback set printed by the University of California Press in 1974 originally published by UC in 1934.There are a lot of mathematical proofs scattered throughout the volumes, which were mostly less interesting to me than parts I could read as simply literature [...]

  2. Patrice

    What did i learn from this book I finally learned why Newton is a genius Why the planets stay in orbit Why reason finally and forever took the place of authority I learned when science was once and for all declared the way to know I learned why calculus is necessary and why Newton invented it I learned why math is the language of the universe I learned why geometry is so important.I am in awe of Newton Everything and everyone who followed him was influenced by him Not just in the science world I [...]

    I tried But this is Newton using geometry to explain the calculus behind his theory of gravity Every few pages, between the charts and equations, he writes a one or two sentence introduction to the proposition about to be proved I understood those Mostly And I could see this is where Newton s Laws of Motions come from His proofs are beyond me though.Interestingly, one of the few other things I could understand, beyond his Preface, was the General Scholium at the end After describing the heliocen [...]

    First, A Clarification The publication I have is the hardcover revision by Florian Cajori of Andrew Motte s 1729 English translation, copyrighted in 1934 by the Regents of the University of California, and published by UC Berkeley and UCLA Press.I should also note that, although I have read Newton s Principia several times over several years and for various reasons, I doubt I have ever completed the whole book To do so would be advisable only under limited circumstances.For whatever reason, Newt [...]

  5. Abram Dorrough

    One of the most intelligent and influential books of all time Period This is an older read I remember fondly enough to rate the full 5 stars even though it has been a while.

  6. Joshua

    I learned that there are some problems which simply cannot be solved with a particular framework that Bezier curves are a fantastic introduction to the philosophical principles of the calculus that I can, in fact, do math.

  7. Chris Duval

    The original book is one of the foundational books for modernity, expounding both mechanics and the calculus while explaining astronomy The little digression at the end into theology can be ignored One can imagine an e edition of this book where, as one reads the description of the ratio of this or that, the relevant lines on the diagram were highlighted Even better, when areas are described by line segments belonging to the same line, the e edition could add a side diagram with links to the ori [...]

  8. Thomas Preusser

    This book, written by Isaac Newton in 1588, served as the foundation of physics for than 300 years, or up to the time Einstein developed relativity theory The fact that it is still in print than 400 years after being written puts it in nearly the same class as the bible One does not actually read this book so much as marvel at it The book is chock full of hundreds of geometric diagrams which essentially deal with systematic measurement and calculation The thing that strikes one most is the lac [...]

  9. Dipesh

    an ingenious and energetic builder who s astonishingly brilliant at composing gorgeous monuments of the most intensely clever design Sometimes these appear as great books like the Principia itself Sometimes they appear in experiments But we would be wrong to look for a single key which unlocks the whole mystery of Isaac Newton.The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy 1729 An English translation by Andrew Motte, based on the 1726 3rd edition of Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematic [...]

  10. Leftbanker

    Newton unleashed one of the most startling scientific undertakings in history with his seemingly simple question posed in this hallowed treatise what would happen if seven people representing various socio economic strata of American life were stranded together on a desert island In the centuries since the publication of this philosophical juggernaut men have agonized over the fundamental question of whether to sleep with Ginger or Mary Ann but what about the old broad Why doesn t anyone go that [...]

  11. Scott

    This book stands as one of the great monuments of science If you can peer through the ponderous geometric proofs of Newton s physical principles, there is an elegance to his theories that transcends mere science and mathematics and touches the sublime He actually formulated his theories using his newly invented methods of Calculus, but few educated readers of his day understood the Calculus, so he proved his ideas using the methods of geometry which all educated persons knew We owe much of moder [...]

  12. Jeff Gabriel

    I don t want to create a whole new shelf for this, but I didn t read it I gave up after reading as far as I could My giving up has nothing to do of course with this historical book of the highest importance However, given that the subject is complex and the language arcane I am afraid I would need an interpreter for both concept and language.I ll stick to learning my physics from modern sources I love reading original sources, and for the things I could grasp this book was very intriguing I jus [...]

  13. John

    Hard going since Newton was so shy about using easy calculus when hard analytic geometry could do the job Still, this is one of the most important books ever written and anyone with an interest in the history of science or in seeing Newton draw up an epistemology at the start of book three to keep his critics from savaging him like they did with his Optics should carve out a few months, get a bunch of paper, and go to.

    I wrote in Chinese, very long, too lazy to translate 11 11 1 10 12 1 4 5 10 10 11 17 13 14 11 13 14 16 17 18 31 15 28 32 39 32 33 35 38 36 39 40 42 3 43 45 46 56 47 57 69 66 70 84 29 70 80 85 93 94 98 19 23 33 7 8

  15. Xander

    The Principia 1687 was Isaac Newton s grand synthesis of 1 Copernicus heliocentric theory, 2 Kepler s three planetary laws, 3 Galilei s study s of motion and forces and 4 Netwon s own mathematical analysis It was than this though it was the first philosophical system of the world since Aristotle s philosophy which had been used by christian theologians since the 12th century as the system of the world.Newton writes this book in the style of Euclidean geometry starting with axioms and then deduc [...]

  16. Dorotea

    What can top this Laws of motion F ma rules Though quantum mechanics have proven it to be fundamentally false And calculus Pure genius The thought of one human mind creating such an elegant tool to calculate everything from force to economics to anything requiring calculations of rate of change almost makes being human worthwhile Poetry at its most finest Almost makes one believe there must be a god.

  17. Lane Wilkinson

    It is a rare pleasure to sit down and read a book upon which your entire culture owes its existence This would be a five star book, but I threw the other star ninja style at the editor who gave primacy to Hawking s name on the binding.

  18. Michael

    An open door into the mind of the man who revolutionized the way to think about mathematics and physical science It is technical.

  19. Germancho

    Who am I kidding I never read than 10 pages of this masterpiece of arcane physics Still, a book for the millenia.

  20. Tony Go

    This book is epic I once spilled glucosamine on it and my soul was ripped from my body by a jealous god.

  21. Candy

    Newton interjects philosophy and debate into math, making theory easier to accept than when handed down for rote memorization in textbooks hundreds of years later.

  22. Mark Bell

    The notes go a long way toward helping the science enthusiast to enjoy this perhaps greatest of all physics texts So clear and concise that I learned heaps than I have with other editions, even as I realized much stuff was slipping through my grasp A real adventure of the mind I ll be sure to revisit again and again.
