The Mechanics of Motion: The Discoveries of Galileo and Newton: Tim Parrott

"Galileo was one of the first scientists to write books for non-specialists wanting to improve their understanding of the physical world. He urges his readers to think carefully and logically. Newton built on those foundations to reveal a Cosmos ruled by physical laws, many of them breath-takingly simple. This course aims to make their discoveries accessible to those without a scientific background. "
