The chapter discusses how around 1602, and in any case before 1604, Galileo started to collect and systematize the results he had obtained while pursuing his challenging research program on swinging and rolling, and the concept of velocity started to figure in his considerations regarding naturally accelerated motion.
New Forms of Natural Philosophy and Mixed Mathematics
Between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries natural philosophy underwent great changes. Formal and final causes were replaced by efficient causes and the world became a huge machine. Greek

Galileo’s quanti: understanding infinitesimal magnitudes
In On Local Motion in the Two New Sciences, Galileo distinguishes between ‘time’ and ‘quanto time’ to justify why a variation in speed has the same properties as an interval of time. In this essay, I
Struggling Over the Soul of Economics: Objectivity Versus Expertise
The topics of this chapter are the notion of objectivity and the role for experts in economics. It will argue that core methodological debates are at heart debates about the notion of objectivity and
