Jan 8, 2017

In this episode, we look at the work of four men who bridge the period between Galileo Galilei and Isaac Newton: Giovanni Battista Riccioli, Rene Descartes, Christiaan Huygens and Robert Hooke.  In this discussion we pay particular attention to each man's work in physics that will set the stage for Newton's great synthesis.
