    The Role of Experiment in Galileo's Early Work on the Law of Fall.R. H. Naylor - 1980 - Annals of Science 37 (4):363-378.
    Beginning with an overview of Galileo's earliest work on free fall, the paper examines the relationship between experiment and theory in his study of motion in the period immediately before and after 1604. The possible role of experiment is assessed in relation to the manuscript evidence and by means of reconstructed experiments.

    Galileo's Theory of Motion: Processes of Conceptual Change in the Period 1604–1610.R. H. Naylor - 1977 - Annals of Science 34 (4):365-392.
    Summary One aim of this paper is to provide an assessment of the recent attempts to interpret the development of Galileo's theory of motion in the late Paduan period 1604?1610. In addition to this a new interpretation of this process of development is advanced. This interpretation is the first that proves able to provide a full account of all the features on folio 152r of volume 72 of the Galilean manuscripts which has been claimed to be of crucial significance. The (...)

    Galileo: The Search for the Parabolic Trajectory.R. H. Naylor - 1976 - Annals of Science 33 (2):153-172.
    Recent study of Galileo's surviving manuscript notes on motion has revealed that by 1609 he had developed the major part of his theory of projectile motion. During the period of these theoretical advances Galileo was engaged in important related experimental investigations; this has become clear from the study of folios 114r and 116v of the manuscript on motion. This paper provides an interpretation of a manuscript not previously discussed—folio 81r. The analysis provided indicates that it is evidence of an important (...)
