Dialogues concerning two new sciences by Galileo Galilei( Book )

129 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 2,453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the standard translation of one of the greatest single works by one of Western science's greatest single men, the Renaissance physicist Galileo Galilei. Written near the end of his life, the book had to be published abroad and led to Galileo's condemnation. But he nevertheless considered it to be "superior to everything else of mine published." Despite the fact that the book encompasses 30 years of highly original experimentation and theorizing on the part of this singular man, it is eminently readable. Written as a discussion between a master and two students, it sets forth its hundreds of experiments in a brisk, direct style. Using helpful geometric demonstrations, Galileo discusses aspects of fracture of solid bodies, cohesion, leverage, the speed of light, sound, pendulums, falling bodies, projectiles, uniform motion, accelerated motion, and the strength of wires, rods and beams under different loadings and placements. Not only does the book display the genius of one of the makers of our civilization, but it also presents, for the historian of science, considerable information about Renaissance misapprehensions that Galileo refuted. -- from back cover

Sidereus nuncius, or, The Sidereal messenger by Galileo Galilei( Book )

207 editions published between 1653 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 1,872 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sidereus Nuncius (usually Sidereal Messenger, also Starry Messenger or Sidereal Message) is a short astronomical treatise (or pamphlet) published in New Latin by Galileo Galilei in March 1610. It was the first published scientific work based on observations made through a telescope, and it contains the results of Galileo's early observations of the imperfect and mountainous Moon, the hundreds of stars that were unable to be seen in either the Milky Way or certain constellations with the naked eye, and the Medicean Stars that appeared to be circling Jupiter.[1] The Latin word nuncius was typically used during this time period to denote messenger; however, albeit less frequently, it was also interpreted as message. While the title Sidereus Nuncius is usually translated into English as Sidereal Messenger, many of Galileo's early drafts of the book and later related writings indicate that the intended purpose of the book was "simply to report the news about recent developments in astronomy, not to pass himself off solemnly as an ambassador from heaven."[2] Therefore, the correct English translation of the title is Sidereal Message (or often, Starry Message)."--Wikiped, Nov/2014

Dialogue sur les deux grands systèmes du monde by Galileo Galilei( Book )

16 editions published between 1632 and 2009 in French and Italian and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Voici, enfin traduit en français, un texte fondateur de notre science et de notre culture. Avec ce livre, notre monde a définitivement « pris le large », comme dit Brecht. Nos amarres ont été larguées, la Terre s’est dérobée sous nos pieds, elle s’est mise à flotter dans les cieux, et les « cieux » même ont disparu. Ce qu’avait annoncé Copernic, Galilée l’accomplit, pleinement conscient de la tension entre le monde nouveau qu’il découvre et les limites de l’homme.Galilée perçoit la nouvelle figure de l’Univers et la rend sensible. Il perçoit aussi la nouvelle figure du savoir et en dessine les contours. Se moquant des pédants qui refusent d’en croire leurs yeux, il proclame son mépris pour le « monde du papier » où se réfugient les philosophes commentateurs. Et pourtant il dit sa compassion pour les esprits en déroute qui, privés de système et de maître, tentent désespérément d’étayer et de colmater le palais ancestral.L’écriture du Dialogue communique le plaisir de ce savoir nouveau, le bonheur de la découverte. La vérité s’éprouve et se goûte dans les déductions mathématiques – alors nous sommes les égaux de Dieu –, et Galilée voudrait qu’en chaque connaissance il y ait cette saveur qu’on garde sur la langue après une démonstration solide. -- [éditeur]

Galileo by Stillman Drake( Book )

3 editions published between 1980 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a startling reinterpretation of the evidence, Stillman Drake advances the hypothesis that Galileo's condemnation by the Inquisition was caused not by his defiance of the Church, but by the hostility of contemporary philosophers. Galileo's own beautifully lucid arguments are used to show how his scientific method--based on a search not for causes but for laws--was utterly divorced from the Aristotelian approach to physics. His methodology had a definitive impact on the development of modern physics, and led to a final parting of the ways between science and philosophy
