Contents 
Mathematical principles of natural philosophy: Book I: Method of first and last ratios  Determination of centripetal forces  Motion of bodies in eccentric conic sections  Finding of elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbolic orbits from the focus given  How the orbits are to be found when neither focus is given  How the motions are to be found in given orbits  Rectilinear ascent and descent of bodies  Determination of orbits in which bodies will revolve, being acted upon by any sort of centripetal force  Motion of bodies in movable orbits; and the motion of the apsides  Motion of bodies in given surfaces; and the oscillating pendulous motion of bodies  Motions of bodies tending to each other with centripetal forces  Attractive forces of spherical bodies  Attractive forces of bodies which are not spherical  Motion of very small bodies when agitated by centripetal forces tending to the several parts of any very great body  Book II: Motion of bodies (In resisting mediums): Motion of bodies that are resisted in the ratio of the velocity  Motion of bodies that are resisted as the square of their velocities  Motion of bodies that are resisted partly in the ratio of the velocities, and partly as the square of the same ratio  Circular motion of bodies in resisting mediums  Density and compression of fluids; hydrostatics  Motion and resistance of pendulous bodies  Motion of fluids and the resistance made to projected bodies  Motion propagated through fluids  Circular motion of fluids  Book III: System of the world (In mathematical treatment): Rules of reasoning in philosophy  Phenomena  Propositions  Motion of the moon's nodes  General Scholium / Sir Isaac Newton  Optics / Sir Isaac Newton  Treatise on light / Christiaan Huygens.
