About this item

Isaac Newton was born in a stone farmhouse in 1642, fatherless and unwanted by his mother. When he died in London in 1727 he was so renowned he was given a state funeralan unheard-of honor for a subject whose achievements were in the realm of the intellect. During the years he was an irascible presence at Trinity College, Cambridge, Newton imagined properties of nature and gave them names mass, gravity, velocity things our science now takes for granted. Inspired by Aristotle, spurred on by Galileos discoveries and the philosophy of Descartes, Newton grasped the intangible and dared to take its measure, a leap of the mind unparalleled in his generation.

James Gleick, the author ofChaosandGenius, and one of the most acclaimed science writers of his generation, brings the reader into Newtons reclusive life and provides startlingly clear explanations of the concepts that changed forever our perception of bodies, rest, and motionideas so basic to the twenty-first century, it can truly be said: We are all Newtonians.
