This corollary immediately follows the famous corollary V (he. cit. p. 20): **The motions of bodies included in a given space are...forwards in a right line without any circular motion,** which is Newton's form of the principle of (special) relativity. It seems clear to me, from the proximity... | |

As we have seen, Newton states it as follows:27 **The motions of bodies included in a given space are...forwards in a right line without any circular motion.** In the Scholium, Newton adopts a severely empirico-inductive approach. The existence of absolute space,... | |

In Corollary 5 of the laws of motion we read: **The motions of bodies included in a given space are...forwards in a right line without any circular motion** [Newton, 1686, p. 20]. This implies that the laws of motion must remain valid for every system at rest... | |
