written by Jose Wudka
This is an article on the Galilean interpretation of relativity. The article emphasizes that velocity is only relevant when measured with respect to something else and also continues to describe how friction hides the full effects of inertia.  The article then states how this view contradicted the Aristotelian relativity prior to Galileo.
