Galileo Galilei was a great scientist, and therefore not afraid of causing controversy, even if he had to pay a great price. His public advocacy of the Copernican over the Aristotelian system of the universe flew directly in the face of biblical authority and ecclesiastical tradition. Condemned and placed under house arrest by the Inquisition, Galileo nonetheless devoted his last years to the completion of his Dialogues Concerning Two New Sciences, which deals with motion and the resistance of solids. The Two New Sciences, which Galileo called his most important work, may be regarded as the summary statement of a life devoted to scientific experimentation and free inquiry untrammeled by tradition and authority.… (més)

The best translation of this classic. ( )

Lots of proofs. Pretty tough reading.

The classic work in which Galileo lays out his vision of the solar system, presenting evidence in support of the Copernican system, the views we now accept. For his troubles, Galileo was hauled before the Inquisition and placed on house arrest for the remainder of his life. The prose becomes a little dense at times, but with a bit of scientific knowledge, it's possible to grasp the basic concepts. ( )

One of the foundational works of modern science, the text speaks for itself in its lucidity and its grounding in method. I review it to address a criticism leveled at this book by reviewers, particularly at Amazon.

Some have concluded that the publisher has made an error, and that the original intent was to present Galileo's original paper on heliocentrism and Copernicus, "Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World systems: Ptolemaic and Copernican". As the texts herein are Galileo's works on accelerated motion, the conclusion is drawn that a major mistake was made.

I believe this perception is based on marketing that associates the series with Copernicus' discoveries in particular.

The fact is that this book is part of a series, the arc of which is to present the current model of the physical world from Copernicus' discovery of the heliocentric solar system to Einstein's revelation that space and time are warped or displaced by mass and energy. Reviewers mistakenly believed that this Galilean text was intended to stand in support of Copernicus' discovery. In fact, this text is meant to show the development of the laws of motion, and is merely part of the overall series. Hawking's introduction recognizes this correctly, in contradiction to the misunderstanding of Amazon reviewers.

Those interested in the origins of modern science, the history of science, physics, or intellectual history may well wish to read through this gem.

This is the single best book on physics I have ever read. Its clarity of thought and breadth of subject are unmatched. If you have ever wanted to know why some materials float in water while others sink, why objects fall at a speed independent of their mass but why feathers fall slower than stones, or
how to convince a guy you met in a bar that air does have weight (and how to measure it), read this book. ( )

Dialogues Concerning Two New Sciences (Galileo's title is Discorsi e Dimostrazioni Matematiche intorno a due nuoue scienze attenenti alla Mechanica & i Movimenti Locali) is about mechanics, not astronomy, and unrelated to his most famous book Dialogue Concerning the Two Principal World Systems (Dialogo sopra i due massimi sistemi del mondo). Do not combine them.
