# jan 3, 1687 - Philosophiæ Naturalis

### Description:

Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica (English pronunciation /fɪləˈsɒfi.aɪ nætʃərˈɑːlɪs prɪnˈkɪpi.ə mæθəˈmætɪkə/, Latin for Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy),[1] often referred to as simply the Principia, is a work in three books by Isaac Newton, in Latin, first published 5 July 1687. After annotating and correcting his personal copy of the first edition, Newton published two further editions, in 1713 and 1726. The Principia states Newton's laws of motion, forming the foundation of classical mechanics; Newton's law of universal gravitation; and a derivation of Kepler's laws of planetary motion (which Kepler first obtained empirically). The Principia is considered one of the most important works in the history of science.
