Beginning with a fresh view of Newton's intellectual development, Mordechai Feingold explores the manner in which Newton's spectacular success in revolutionizing the natural sciences made him a figure to be emulated or rejected, revered or excoriated - but always there to contend with." "A companion volume to an exhibition at The New York Public Library, the book is illustrated with more than 200 drawings, paintings, frescoes, sculptures, portraits, rare books, and original manuscripts - from the Library and other major collections - which demonstrate both Newton's status as icon and the way in which his colossal accomplishments came to permeate the science, literature, art, and religion of the era of Enlightenment and beyond."--BOOK JACKET."
