about this item

Rowlands, a physics professor at the University of Liverpool, investigates Sir Isaac Newton’s quarrel with the German mathematician Gottfried Leibniz over the invention of the calculus which led to profound discussions concerning the nature of mathematics and the relative significance of the processes of analysis and synthesis. Rowlands also discusses some of Newton’s theories that remain controversial. An appendix reviews the results of recent scholarship. The first two books in the three-book series focus on Newton’s analytical approach to problems and planetary motions. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
