Isaac Newton: Organizing the Universe
Online Periodical or Article
Isaac Newton's monumental work is unparalleled in the history of scientific thought. In seventeenth century England, he developed three laws of motion that, combined with his principle of universal gravitation, explained the elemental forces of the universe. His experiments in optics revolutionized our understanding of the nature of light. To better explain his discoveries, he created a new method of mathematics, which today we call calculus. His genius has shaped our perception of the universe we inhabit. Perhaps the most profound scientific thinker ever to live, Isaac Newton was also a complex, quarrelsome, and private man, who was as devoted to theology and the ancient art of alchemy as he was to science. Isaac Newton: Organizing the Universe brings this intriguing man and his provocative ideas to life for a new generation of readers. Book jacket.
