Selon Albert Camus, qui l'édita pour los angeles première fois en 1949, ce livre «d'une audace parfois poor, impitoyable et en même temps admirablement mesuré, d'un christianisme authentique et très pur, est une leçon souvent amère, mais d'une infrequent élévation de pensée»

Let us define: A body moves with simple or first degree epicyclical motion if it describes a circle (the epicycle) whose centre moves on another circle (the deferent) about a fixed point. A body moves with nth degree epicyclical motion (n > 1) if it describes a circle (the nth epicycle) whose centre moves with (n - l)th degree epicyclical motion. nth degree epicyclical motion (n s 1) is said to be uniform if the body moves with constant angular velocity about the centre of the nth epicycle and the centre of the jth epicycle ( l < / < n ) moves with constant angular velocity about the centre of the (j - l)th epicycle (or the centre of the deferent, if j = 1).

Luminous ethereal bodies are fixed on some of the spheres. In fact, all except seven are found on the outermost sphere, which is known for this reason as the sphere of the fixed stars. The next three spheres move, respectively, like the last three spheres in the Eudoxian model of Saturn, Saturn itself being affixed to the equator of the third one. Then come three spheres whose rotations cancel out those of the former three, so that a point on the last one moves like a fixed star. The next three spheres move like the last three spheres of the Eudoxian model of Jupiter, and Jupiter is affixed to the last.

None of these ideas was wholly new, but not until the 17th century did they become the mainstay of a sustained syste­ matic search for comprehensive physical knowledge.
