Aristotle’s Physics: A Physicist’s look

Carlo Rovelli 1, 2
Abstract : I show that Aristotelian physics is a correct approximation of Newtonian physics in its appropriate domain, in the same precise sense in which Newton theory is an approximation of Einstein's theory. Aristotelian physics lasted long not because it became dogma, but because it is a very good theory.
