    History of the Inductive Sciences: From the Earliest to the Present Times.William Whewell - 2010 - Cambridge University Press.
    A central figure in Victorian science, William Whewell held professorships in Mineralogy and Moral Philosophy at Trinity College, Cambridge, before becoming Master of the college in 1841. His mathematical textbooks, such as A Treatise on Dynamics, were instrumental in bringing French analytical methods into British science. This three-volume history, first published in 1837, is one of Whewell's most famous works. Taking the 'acute, but fruitless, essays of Greek philosophy' as a starting point, it provides a history of the physical sciences (...)

    The Philosophy of the Inductive Sciences: Volume 1: Founded Upon Their History.William Whewell - 2014 - Cambridge University Press.
    First published in 1840, this two-volume treatise by Cambridge polymath William Whewell remains significant in the philosophy of science. The work was intended as the 'moral' to his three-volume History of the Inductive Sciences, which is also reissued in this series. Building on philosophical foundations laid by Immanuel Kant and Francis Bacon, Whewell opens with the aphorism 'Man is the Interpreter of Nature, Science the right interpretation'. Volume 1 contains the majority of Whewell's section on 'ideas', in which he investigates (...)

    Philosophy of Inductive Sciences, founded upon their history. Book 3, Chapter 4.William Whewell, A. Nikiforov, I. Kasavin & T. Sokolova - 2016 - Epistemology and Philosophy of Science 49 (3):198-215.
    The text continues the translation series of William Whewell's book «The Philosophy of the Inductive Sciences, founded upon their history». The chapter devoted to the establishment of such concepts of statics and dynamics, as equilibrium, measure of statical forces, gravity, oblique forces, and the parallelogram of forces. Whewell substantiates the fundamental principles of mechanics by analogy with the axioms of geometry, but his justification of the necessity of mechanical laws is based on the idea of causality. Translated by A.L. Nikiforov, (...)
