Example text

In contrast to belief in traditional authority (which at that time meant belief in the teachings of Aristotle), Descartes believed that only one's own thinking could be trusted. " For Descartes, pure reasoning served as the sole basis of certainty. Such a paradigm would aid the transition from an Aristotelian worldview to a Newtonian one, but it contained within itself the seeds of its own destruction. It was not too surprising that Descartes failed to grasp the implication of his law of inertia regarding planetary motion.

These laws, in and of themselves, say nothing about the reason why a given physical system behaves the way it does. Newton was quite explicit about that shortcoming. He refused to speculate (at least in print) why objects move the way they do. Whatever "mechanism" lay behind the workings of physical systems remained forever hidden from Newton's eyes. He simply stated that, for whatever reason, this is the way things work, as demonstrated by the power of his calcu- lational prescription to predict, with astonishing accuracy, the evolution of physical systems set in motion.
