Newton, His Friends and His Foes Hardback

Part of the Variorum Collected Studies series

Description

Over the last forty years Professor Hall has been a major contributor to the 'new view' of Newton now generally accepted. Essentially this has derived from the bringing to light and examination of Newton's vast, but long neglected legacy of manuscripts, and the first studies in this volume illustrate the wealth of information these provide on the earliest phases of his great discoveries in mathematics and science. In particular, they confirm the intensity and originality of Newton's investigations before and through the 'anni mirabiles' of 1665-66. Further papers then deal with his relations with contemporaries such as Hooke, Leibniz and Huyghens, again making extensive use of unpublished manuscript material, and with the developing influence of his work. Durant les quarante dernieres annees, le professeur Hall a ete l'un des plus importants contributeurs A la nouvelle appreciation de l'oeuvre de Newton, qui est de nos jours la plus generalement acceptee. Ceci provient essentiellement de l'examen du vaste heritage de manuscrits laisses par Newton et tres longtemps neglige; les premieres etudes de ce volume illustrent la richesse d'informations contenues dans ceux-ci quant aux toutes premieres phases de ses grandes decouvertes dans le domaine des mathematiques et de le science. Ils confirment en particulier l'intensite et l'originalite des recherches de Newton avant et pendant les anni mirabiles de 1665-66. S'ajoutent A ceci plusieurs etudes, oA(1) il est A nouveau fait grand usage de manuscrits inedits, traitant des rapports qu'il entretenait avec ses contemporains tels, Hooke, Leibniz et Huyghens, ainsi que de l'influence progressive de ses travaux.
