Two New Sciences: Including Centers of Gravity and Force of Percussion, by Galileo Galilei. Professor Stillman Drake's classic translation of Galileo's final and authoritative masterpiece that set forth the new sciences of motion and of material strengths and established physics as a modern science. Do not confuse this translation with a popular competing one! Drake's earlier landmark translation of Galileo's 1632 Dialogue on the Two Great World Systems was followed by more than twenty years' study and reflection on Galileo's working papers before Drake translated and extensively annotated Two New Sciences. Originally published in 1638 as Discourses and Mathematical Demonstrations Concerning Two New Sciences Pertaining to Mechanics and Local Motions. 327 pages, hard or soft cover.
