Matter and Motion (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Matter and Motion

Physical science, which up to the end of the eighteenth century had been fully occupied in forming a conception Of natural phenomena as the result of forces acting between one body and another, has now fairly entered on the next stage of progress - that in which the energy Of a material system is conceived as determined by the configuration and motion of that system, and in which the ideas of configuration, motion, and force are generalised to the utmost extent warranted by their physical definitions.

TO become acquainted with these fundamental ideas, to examine them under all their aspects, and habitually to guide the current of thought along the channels of strict dynamical reasoning, must be the foundation of the training Of the student of Physical Science.

The following statement of the fundamental doctrines of Matter and Motion is therefore to be regarded as an introduction to the study of Physical Science in general.
