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 more 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 authoritative, modern translation by I. Bernard Cohen and Anne Whitman, the first in more than 285 years, is based on the 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 Newton's Principia by I. Bernard Cohen makes this preeminent work truly accessible for today's scientists, scholars, and students.

Einsteins Gegner

Die öffentliche Kontroverse um die Relativitätstheorie in den 1920er Jahren

In den 1920er Jahren erschienen zahlreiche populäre Schriften, die Einsteins Relativitätstheorie widerlegen wollten. Milena Wazeck zeigt, in welchem Maße der Physiker und seine Theorie von Akademikern wie auch von Nichtakademikern als fundamentale Bedrohung wahrgenommen wurden. Diese Bedrohung war so stark, dass sich ein internationales Netzwerk gegen die Relativitätstheorie formierte, dessen Existenz hier anhand neuen Quellenmaterials erstmals belegt wird.

New York, 1919. Roger Mifflin hat seine größte Leidenschaft, das Lesen, zum Beruf gemacht. In seinem Antiquariat in Brooklyn findet man ihn dort, wo der Tabakrauch am dichtesten ist. Unterstützt wird er von seiner ebenso patenten wie resoluten Ehefrau und seinem Hund Bock - Bock wie Boccaccio. Bücher sind Mifflins Leben. Von Werbemaßnahmen für sein Geschäft will er allerdings nichts wissen, und so lässt er den jungen Aubrey Gilbert, angestellt bei der Grey Matter Agency, ziemlich abblitzen, als der ihm seine Dienste anbietet. Dennoch freunden sich die beiden an, und bald kommt Gilbert täglich ins Geschäft. Was auch an Mifflins neuer Hilfskraft liegen mag - der schönen Titania Chapman, deren Leben in Gefahr zu sein scheint. Und das gilt nicht nur für ihr Leben ...
