  1. “A Masterly Though Neglected Work”, Boscovich’s Treatise on Conic Sections.Alessandra Fiocca & Andrea Del Centina - 2018 - Archive for History of Exact Sciences 72 (4):453-495.
    In this paper, we describe the genesis of Boscovich’s Sectionum Conicarum Elementa and discuss the motivations which led him to write this work. Moreover, by analysing the structure of this treatise in some depth, we show how he developed the completely new idea of “eccentric circle” and derived the whole theory of conic sections by starting from it. We also comment on the reception of this treatise in Italy, and abroad, especially in England, where—since the late eighteenth century—several authors found (...)

  • A Development of the Principle of Virtual Laws and its Conceptual Framework in Mechanics as Fundamental Relationship Between Physics and Mathematics.Pisano Raffaele - 2017 - Transversal: International Journal for the Historiography of Science 2:166.
    Generally speaking, virtual displacement or work concerns to a timely idea according to which a motion of a certain body is not the unique possible motion. The process of reducing this motion to a particular magnitude and concept, eventually minimizing as a hypothesis, can be traced back to the Aristotelian school. In the history and philosophy of science one finds various enunciations of the Principle of Virtual Laws and its virtual displacement or work applications, i.e., from Aristotle to Leibniz’s vis (...)
