Abstract:

Publisher Description (unedited publisher data) Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727) was one of the greatest scientists of all time, a thinker of extraordinary range and creativity who has left enduring legacies in mathematics and the natural sciences. In this volume a team of distinguished contributors examine all the main aspects of Newton's thought, including not only his approach to space, time, mechanics, and universal gravity in his Principia, his research in optics, and his contributions to mathematics, but also his more clandestine investigations into alchemy, theology, and prophecy, which have sometimes been overshadowed by his mathematical and scientific interests. Library of Congress subject headings for this publication: Newton, Isaac, Sir, 1642-1727, Physics Europe History 17th century, Physics Europe History 18th century, Science Europe History 17th century, Science Europe History 18th century.
