Dialogues concerning two new sciences by Galileo Galilei( Book )

133 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 2,848 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
Galileo on the world systems : a new abridged translation and guide by Galileo Galilei( )

15 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and Italian and held by 2,444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Galileo's 1632 book, Dialogue on the Two Chief World Systems, Ptolemaic and Copernican, comes alive for twentieth-century readers thanks to Maurice Finocchiaro's brilliant new translation and presentation. Condemned by the Inquisition for its heretical proposition that the earth revolves around the sun, Galileo's masterpiece takes the form of a debate, divided into four Days, among three highly articulate gentlemen. Finocchiaro sets the stage with his Introduction, which not only provides the human and historical framework for the Dialogue but also admits the reader gracefully into the basic non-Copernican understanding of the universe that would have been shared by Galileo's original audience. The translation of the Dialogue is abridged in order to highlight its essential content, and Finocchiaro gives titles to the various parts of the debate as a guide to the principal topics. Focusing on those universal, perennial activities of the human mind that make Galileo's book a living document, Finocchiaro elucidates the mental skills of critical reasoning, methodological reflection, and verbal rhetoric. With an appendix devoted to these activities and their place in the Dialogue, he offers the reader a concrete, hands-on introduction to critical thinking. Galileo on the World Systems is a remarkably nuanced interpretation of a classic work and will give readers the tools to understand and evaluate for themselves one of the most influential scientific books in Western civilization. -- from back cover

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

193 editions published between 1610 and 2020 in 10 languages and held by 1,878 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

Discoveries and opinions of Galileo by Galileo Galilei( Book )

21 editions published between 1957 and 1997 in English and held by 1,156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Directing his polemics against the pedantry of his time, Galileo, as his own popularizer, addressed his writings to contemporary laymen. His support of Copernican cosmology, against the Church's strong opposition, his development of a telescope, and his unorthodox opinions as a philosopher of science were the central concerns of his career and the subjects of four of his most important writings. Drake's introductory essay place them in their biographical and historical context

Systema cosmicum by Galileo Galilei( )

33 editions published between 1635 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Galileo Galilei's (1564-1642) Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems was first published in Italian in 1632 (Florence). Because Galileo's comparison between the Copernican and the traditional Ptolemaic systems had caused outrage among the Catholic clergy, the book was placed on the Index of Forbidden Books. Fortunately, the manuscript was adopted by scholars throughout Europe. The Elzeviers' Latin edition, titled Dialogus Systema Mundi was published in 1635, and contains a beautiful title page, as well as a portrait of the author

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

50 editions published between 1632 and 2002 in 5 languages and held by 401 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]

Il saggiatore by Galileo Galilei( Book )

69 editions published between 1623 and 2015 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Novembre 1618: la comparsa di tre comete non solo eccita i timori dei superstiziosi, ma tiene "in continuo esercizio i primi ingegni d'Europa". Ottobre 1623: si conclude la stampa del Saggiatore di Galileo Galilei, colui che gli Accademici Lincei salutano come "lo scopritore non di nuove terre, ma di non più vedute parti del cielo". Spaziando dalla genesi del suono all'origine del calore alla composizione della luce "in atomi realmente indivisibili" Galileo entra pubblicamente nella disputa contro "Lotario Sarsi Sigensano, l'astronomico e filosofico scorpione", cioè il gesuita Orazio Grassi. Nel ripercorrere la vicenda delle sue scoperte Galileo delinea insieme una difesa del proprio operato e l'apologia della ricerca scientifica, sempre più insofferente dei vincoli imposti da autorità teologiche e politiche. Nel tempo in cui, come scrive il poeta John Donne, "la nuova filosofia mette tutto in dubbio", Galileo si affida alla matematica come a una guida sicura per uscire da "un oscuro laberinto" e comprendere il Grande Libro della natura; ma "l'artista toscano" non dimentica per questo il ruolo dell'esperimento e l'apporto della tecnica. Geometria, esperienza e "discorso" (cioè arte dell'argomentazione) cooperano così alla confutazione dell'errore in un'impresa che il singolo studioso può tradire solo col rendere il suo intelletto "mancipio - cioè servo - dell'intelletto di un altr'uomo."
