Isaac Newton: His Life and Visionary Ideas – clip

Matthew Stanley / New York University

Isaac Newton’s experiments, equations, and calculations changed the world – but he thought those were his least important contributions.  He saw his epochal investigations in science as just one part of his obsessive quest to find the deepest truths of the universe, which took him through physics, alchemy, and theology.  Newton lived at a time of almost unimaginable turmoil and uncertainty, surrounded by wars, plagues, and revolution. In this course, we will examine his life and ideas to see how he not only established science as we know it today but created a framework for knowledge that reshaped everything–from philosophy to politics.
