Summary
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 physics. While most famous for his Principia, his work on light and color, and his discovery of the calculus, Newton devoted much more time to research in chemistry and alchemy, and to studying prophecy, church history, and ancient chronology. This new edition of The Cambridge Companion to Newton provides authoritative introductions to these further dimensions of his endeavors as well as to many aspects of his physics and mathematics. It includes a revised bibliography, a new introduction, and six new chapters: Three replacing previous chapters on Newton's mathematics, his chemistry and alchemy, and the reception of his religious views; and three on entirely new subjects, namely his religion, his ancient chronology, and the treatment of continuous and discontinuous forces in his second law of motion. -- from back cover
