Introducing Newton: A Graphic Guide (Introducing...)
By: William Rankin (author)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
"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!'.
William Rankin has worked in London for Oz and the Radio Times; in France for Actuel and Echo des Savanes; and in Sweden for Etc. and Dagens Nyheter. Born in Edinburgh, he now lives in Paris and works for a major newspaper.
