"This new, vastly better translation of the Principia is the perfect work for illustrating how science, at its best, succeeds in turning data into decisive evidence."—George E. Smith, Tufts University

"This translation is deeply impressive and will be the definitive version for a century to come. Cohen's guide is up-to-date on matters of Newton scholarship and free from discarded conjectures of the past."—Curtis Wilson, St. John's College

Psychological Reports

An extremely impressive and useful new English translation of Newton's revolutionary work. . . . That such a project was completed so well is a result of astonishing scholarship and collaboration among a wide group of talented people. This reviewer applauds their work, as undoubtedly many other English readers will in time to come.
