Adventurer in Thought

In this elegant, absorbing biography of Isaac Newton (1642-1727), Rupert Hall surveys the vast field of modern scholarship in order to interpret Newton's mathematical and experimental approach to nature. Mathematics was always the deepest, most innovative and productive of Newton's interests. However, he was also a historian, theologian, chemist, civil servant and natural philosopher. These diverse studies were unified in his single design as a Christian to explore every facet of God's creation. The exploration during the past forty years of Newton's huge manuscript legacy, has greatly altered previous stories of Newton's life, throwing new light on his personality and intellect. Hall's discussion of this research, first published in 1992, shows that Newton cannot simply be explained as a Platonist, or mystic. He remains a complex and enigmatic genius with an immensely imaginative and commonsensical mind.

Auszug: ... inwohnende Eigenschaften smd, sondern entstehen aus der F higkeit der Theilchen eines jeden K rpers, gewisse Strahlen zu unterdr eken der zu absoebiren, und auf diese Weise die nicht verschluckten Strahlen reichlicher zur ckzuwerfen. Nicht so bald waren diese Entdeckungen der Welt bekannt geworden, als sie solche heftige und unwissende Gegner fanden, wie man sie selten in wissenschaftlichen Streitigkeiten gefunden hat. Es war ein Ungl ck f r Newton, da die k nigl.

Im April 1672 schickte Newton an Oldenburg eine entscheidende Replik auf die Bemerkungen von Pa r dies; aber aufgebracht, sich besiegt zu sehen, nahm dieser I nger von Desea rtes eine neue Stellung an und behauptete, da die Verl ngerung/ des Bildes durch die Verbreitung des Lichtes nach Grimaldi' s Hypothes...

Early Biographies of Isaac Newton

The life of Sir Isaac Newton (1642–1727), arguably the most towering figure of British science, has attracted the interest of contemporaries and successive generations alike. His works inspired many to write his biography, and a body of biographical material emerged over the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Not all of these writings have been published, however, and those that went into print are not widely available. This reset edition is the first thoroughly edited collection of the biographical accounts of Newton and demonstrates the way in which his reputation developed in the centuries after his death. The first volume contains manuscripts from the early eighteenth century, appearing here in print for the very first time. Also included in Volume 1 is a range of private letters, poetry and memoranda illuminating the reception of the scientist in the eighteenth century. Volume 2 continues the story with nineteenth century texts echoing the debate over Newton’s reputation, his scientific work and personal life. The publication of these disparate and fascinating sources makes the early critical heritage of Newton available to a wide variety of scholars, from the history of science to literary and cultural historians.

Begegnungen am CERN – Menschen, die die Geheimnisse des Universums entschlüsseln/Michael Krause stellt sie uns vor Eine »wissenschaftliche Sensation«, ein »historischer Meilenstein«, historisch so bedeutend wie die Mondlandung: Als Wissenschaftler des CERN im Juli 2012 die Existenz eines »Gottesteilchens«, das allen anderen Teilchen Masse verleiht, mit einer Wahrscheinlichkeit von mehr als 99,999 Prozent bestätigten, waren die Reaktionen überwältigend. Schließlich arbeiten die Forscher hier an nichts Geringerem als an der Entschlüsselung der Geheimnisse des Universums. Die Suche nach dem Grund des Daseins und dem Ursprung aller Materie ist auch das Thema dieses Buches. Träume, Visionen, Forschungen: die Menschen stehen im Mittelpunkt Das »Gottesteilchen«, die Erforschung der »Dunklen Materie« und der »Dunklen Energie« und der stärkste je gebaute Teilchenbeschleuniger der Welt – all das sind die spannenden Bestandteile des Buches. In den Mittelpunkt seiner Arbeit stellt Krause jedoch die Menschen am CERN, ihren Hintergrund, ihre Geschichte, ihre Arbeit, ihre Forschungen, Träume und Visionen – sie sind das Hauptthema des Buches. Krause verleiht den wissenschaftlichen Forschungen am CERN somit ein persönliches Gesicht und schreibt das Portrait einer ganzen Generation von Wissenschaftlern, die in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten an der sogenannten »Neuen Physik« gearbeitet haben.
