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 l Of co...

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 scien 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...

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 h I tried But ...

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, Ne 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 time...

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.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here 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 ma...

This book, written by Isaac Newton in 1588, served as the foundation of physics forthan 300 years, or up to the time Einstein developed relativity theory The fact that it is still in printthan 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 mos This book, written by Isaac Newton in 1588, served as the foundation of physics forthan 300 years, or up to the time Einstein developed relativity theory The fact that it is still in printthan 400 years after being written puts it in nearly the same class as the bible O...

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 Philos...
