“Introducing Newton” explains the extraordinary ideas of a man who sifted through the accumulated knowledge of centuries, tossed out mistaken beliefs, and single-handedly made enormous advances in mathematics, mechanics and optics. By the age of 25, entirely self-taught, he had sketched out a system of the world. Einstein’s theories are unthinkable without Newton’s founding system. He was also a secret heretic, a mystic and an alchemist, the man of whom Edmond Halley said, ‘Nearer to the gods may no man approach!’.
