In this fresh account of the scientific ferment following the Renaissance, Dr. Cohen tells, through the lives of Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, and Newton, the story of the search for a new physics - a physics to describe the dynamics of a moving universe. In conflict with Aristotle's physics, Copernicus's concept of an earth in motion necessitated bold new explanations of natural phenomena, from the mechanics of rolling balls to the motion of stars and planets. This search culminated in Newton's master stroke, the formulation of the law of universal gravitation and his related laws, which are the foundation of modern science and technology and which represent "the creative accomplishment of the human spirit at its pinnacle." Includes an Index.

(Key Words: I. Bernard Cohen, Physics, Venus, Planets, Aristotle, Saturn, Nicolas Copernicus, Galileo Galilei, Johannes Kepler, Sir Isaac Newton, Mercury, Inertia).
