Sample text

For Aristotle, there was no such thing as free motion; if the cause of motion stopped acting on the object in motion, the motion of the object would cease. Galileo was the first to realize that motion is not a process requiring a continuous cause, since it persists until something external acts on it. The insight that motion is not a process made modern mechanics possible. It implied that motion must be a state and is thus just like rest. Although Descartes and Leibniz had different views on Galilean mechanics (which contributed to the prolongation of their dispute), Galileo’s idea of considering motion to be a state served as the common ground of their rivaling theories of force.

The vis viva debate seemed to have ended in a draw. Around 1740, the issue that was originally a puzzle for mathematicians and mechanical philosophers became a topic among literati and intellectuals. The vis viva question became party talk in French salons, in particular in Mme la Marquise de Chaˆtelet’s circle at Cirey, frequented by the likes of Maupertuis and Voltaire. The Marquise de Chaˆtelet (‘‘Chastelet,’’ ‘‘Chastellet’’) was a correspondent of Frederick the Great (who, at the time of the correspondence, was still a prince and not yet ‘‘the Great’’) and would later prepare the first French translation of Newton’s Principia (1756).

Since mv is not conserved in every frame, Descartes’s principle of the quantity of motion is not correct. 2 The Controversies from 1686 to 1741 Descartes had died in 1650, before the vis viva debate, and upon the publication of Leibniz’s incendiary article in 1686, Descartes’s followers took up the cause of the quantity of motion. The strange thing about the debate is that not much happened. 26 No group could convince the other. Predictably, the Germans sided with Leibniz, the French with Descartes, the British with Newton; the battle over vis viva acquired national overtones, which certainly did not help settle the issue.
