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 examines all the main aspects of Newton’s thought, including not only his approach to space, time, 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. New readers and non-specialists will find this the most convenient and accessible guide to Newton currently available. Advanced students and specialists will find a conspectus of recent developments in the interpretation of Newton.
