Description: A unique and accessible account of Newton's popular and scientific reputation. Isaac Newton is now universally celebrated as a genius of science, renowned for his innovatory work on gravity and optics. Yet the term 'scientist' was not coined until the 1830s, a hundred years after his death. And Newton did not always enjoy such legendary status. A reclusive scholar who wrote more about alchemy and theology than natural philosophy, he has been heroised by many, but vilified as a madman by others. His posthumous reputation has constantly changed and is riddled with contradictions. NEWTON investigates the different ways in which Newton's life and... more...
