  Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is in the Principia that Newton expressed his famous Hypotheses non fingo ("I feign no hypotheses").
Descartes' book of 1644 Principia philosophiae (Principles of philosophy) stated that bodies can act on each other only through contact: a principle that induced people, among them himself, to hypothesize a universal medium as the carrier of interactions such as light and gravity—the aether.
It was perhaps the force of the Principia, which explained so many different things about the natural world with such economy, that caused this method to become synonymous with physics, even as it is practised almost three and a half centuries after his beginning.

These were avoided in the Principia by building an elaborate system of types: a set has a higher type than its elements and one can not speak of the "set of all sets" and similar constructs which lead to paradoxes (see Russell's paradox).

Newton was an important part of what some have termed the "Scientific Revolution" in which older scientific theories based on the works of clasical authors like Aristotle, Plato, or indeed the Bible, were replaced by new ideas that changed how people viewed the very nature of the Universe and how it worked.
