Exploring the Limits of Preclassical Mechanics

Exploring the Limits of Preclassical Mechanics: A Study of Conceptual Development in Early Modern Science: Free Fall and Compounded Motion in the Work … History of Mathematics and Physical Sciences) by Peter Damerow
English | 2004 | ISBN: 1441919171 | 414 Pages | PDF | 10 MB

The question of when and how the basic concepts that characterize modern science arose in Western Europe has long been central to the history of science. This book examines the transition from Renaissance engineering and philosophy of nature to classical mechanics oriented on the central concept of velocity.
The Problem of the Motion of Bodies: A Historical View of the Development of Classical Mechanics

The Problem of the Motion of Bodies: A Historical View of the Development of Classical Mechanics by Danilo Capecchi
English | 2014 | ISBN: 3319048392 | 554 pages | PDF | 8,4 MB

This book focuses on the way in which the problem of the motion of bodies has been viewed and approached over the course of human history. It is not another traditional history of mechanics but rather aims to enable the reader to fully understand the deeper ideas that inspired men, first in attempting to understand the mechanisms of motion and then in formulating theories with predictive as well as explanatory value.

Clifford A. Truesdell, "Essays in the History of Mechanics"

The leitmotif of these essays is a critique of overextensions of the epithet "Newtonian":
"It is [not] the primitive mechanics of Newton … that we are taught as the most successful, the most thoroughly proved and understood, and the most perfect of the sciences of nature–-the prototype and paradigm of a mathematical theory from physical phenomena.
