PrincipiaThe Mathematical Principles of

Natural Philosophy; To Which Is

Added Newton's System of the World

After a terrible experience of professional and personal ridicule at the hands of Robert Hooke, this book could very easily have never been published. The cost to human scientific understanding would have been catastrophic and we have not only Isaac Newton to thank for its presence. After a tragic experience of humiliation when Hooke claimed to have been the mastermind behind the discovery of the laws governing planetary motion, Newton was wary. Edmund Halley, best known to us for his namesake comet, rifled through his papers, and among his other contributions to science he convinced his friend Newton to publish his greatest work, and one of science’s greatest treasures. That book is this, Newton's Principia; The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy. In these pages are the original inspired calculations that allow humanity to understand how one of the chief physical forces we encounter every day works.

Isaac Newton’s forces which act without a specific medium to work through were a new concept, defying the previously dominant idea of all objects existing within a physical ‘ether’. This insight changed how people thought about and studied physics, leading directly to later scientific breakthroughs.

In an age of polymaths, Newton was no exception, he was a student of philosophy in his youth and attempted to provide the same logical underpinning to his scientific work. He even sought a way to square his intellectual convictions with his theological beliefs, which were deep rooted and remained with him all his life.

That the principia of Newton should have remained so gen Erally unknown in this country to the present day is a somewhat remarkable fact; because the name of the author, learned with the very elements of science, is revered at every hearth-stone where knowledge and virtue are of chief esteem, while, abroad, in all the high places of the land, the character which that name recalls is held up as the noblest illustration of what man may be, and may do, in the possession and manifestation of pro-eminent intellectual and moral worth; because the work is celebrated, not onlyin the history of one career and one mind, but in the history of all achievement and human reason itself; because of the spirit of inquiry, which has been aroused, and which, in pursuing its searchings, is not always satisfied with stopping short of the foun tain-head of any given truth; and, finally, because of the earnest endeavour that has been and is constantly going on, in many sections of the Republic, to elevate the popular standard of edu cation and give to scientific and other efforts a higher and a better aim.
