The foundation of Newton's mechanics
Subject of the lecture is the preconditions of physics of Isaac Newton. These preconditions named by Newton by "hypotheses", have metaphysical character as they cannot become a subject of strict scientific research. The purpose of the lecture is demonstration of that physics of Newton, no less than any physical theory, is impossible without these preconditions. In this context the major concepts of mechanics of Newton, such as mass, space and time are discussed.
