By Dino Boccaletti

This booklet is meant as a old and important research at the foundation of the equations of movement as confirmed in Newton's Principia. The primary query that it goals to respond to is whether or not it really is certainly right to ascribe to Galileo the inertia precept and the legislation of falling our bodies. in an effort to accomplish this activity, the examine starts off via contemplating theories at the movement of our bodies from classical antiquity, and particularly these of Aristotle.
