This book clearly shows how the underlying concept of the caculus had been developed from geometric intuiton to formal logical elaboration. It feels good to know that even Newton himself was having trouble defining the infinitesimals. Now I can understand why modern calculus books are filled with so many strict definitions of continuity and limits. Mathematicians had to establish rigorous formulation of the calculus to free themselves from the vague definition of physical realities which modern physicist cannot understand even now.
