More About This Textbook


Over the past twenty-five years - since the very large collection of Newton's papers became available and began to be seriously examined - the beginnings of a new picture of Newton has emerged. This volume of essays builds upon the foundation of its authors in their previous works and extends and elaborates the emerging picture of the 'new' Newton, the great synthesizer of science and religion as revealed in his intellectual context.
