BAPTISTA, José Plínio. The fundamental principles of physics and the history of physics. Rev. Bras. Ensino Fís. [online]. 2006, vol.28, n.4, pp. 541-553. ISSN 1806-1117. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-47442006000400017.
We point out the empirical nature of the fundamental principles of physics and emphasize the independence of this principles from theories and its formalization. We give also different expressions for these principles associated to different formulations of some physical theories.
Keywords : history of science; history of physics; classical mecanics.
