Abstract

The Geneva edition ([1739-1742] 1822) of Newton’s Principia is a very treasure for the historians of physics and mathematics. For, the editors added a series of notes, which are longer than Newton’s text itself. The explanations contained in such notes are important to grasp the way in which the spread of Newton’s thought was realized in the continental Europe. Based on our previous studies, in this contribution we present a case study from Geneva edition adding Nature of Science educational reflexions.
