    Emergence and Expansion of Pre-Classical Mechanics.Matteo Valleriani, Matthias Schemmel, Jürgen Renn & Rivka Feldhay (eds.) - 2018 - Springer Verlag.
    This book is divided into two sections. The first section is concerned with the emergence and expansion of a form of mechanical knowledge defined by us as pre-classical mechanics. The definition purports to the period roughly between the 15th and the 17th century, before classical mechanics was formulated as a coherent and comprehensive mechanical theory in the sequel of Newton's work. The investigation of problems that were isolated from each other at the time but cohered into some kind of stable (...)

    The Hidden Praeceptor: How Georg Rheticus Taught Geocentric Cosmology to Europe.Matteo Valleriani, Beate Federau & Olya Nicolaeva - 2022 - Perspectives on Science 30 (3):407-436.
    A corpus of 360 distinct early modern printed editions containing Johannes de Sacrobosco’s Tractatus de sphaera is “dissected” into a corpus of 540 text-parts, 241 of them re-occurring at least once. Through the exploration of the data, we recognized a relevant position for four anonymous authors in their social network. We demonstrate that the text-parts originally assigned to the anonymous authors were authored or edited by Georg Rheticus. By means of data analysis, we conclusively establish that Rheticus profoundly impacted the (...)

    The Transformation of Aristotle's Mechanical Questions: A Bridge Between the Italian Renaissance Architects and Galileo's First New Science.Matteo Valleriani - 2009 - Annals of Science 66 (2):183-208.
    The reception process of Aristotle's Mechanical Questions during the early modern period began with the publication of the corpus aristotelicum between 1495 and 1498. Between 1581 and 1627, two of the thirty-five arguments discussed in the text, namely Question XIV concerning the resistance to fracture and Question XVI concerning the deformation of objects such as timbers, became central to the work of the commentators. The commentaries of Bernardino Baldi , Giovanni de Benedetti , Giuseppe Biancani and Giovanni di Guevara gradually (...)
