  As F.E. Manuel says in his book»The Religion of Isaac Newton«:»The more Newton’s theological and alchemical, chronological and mythological work is examined as a whole corpus, set by the side of his science, the more apparent it becomes that in his moments of grandeur he saw himself as the last of the interpreters of God’s will in.   Full Docmentary - Secret Life of Isaac Newton - Full Documentaries Films Isaac Newton produced many works that would now be classified as occult studies. These works explored chronology, alchemy.

Isaac Newton (–) is best known for having invented the calculus in the mid to late s (most of a decade before Leibniz did so independently, and ultimately more influentially) and for having formulated the theory of universal gravity — the latter in his Principia, the single most important work in the transformation of early modern natural philosophy into modern physical .

Sir Isaac Newton, FRS (4 January – 31 March ) [ OS: 25 December – 20 March ] was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, alchemist, and natural philosopher, regarded by many as the greatest figure in the history of science. His treatise Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica, published in , described universal gravitation and the Born: 4 January [OS: 25 December ], Woolsthorpe-by-Colsterworth, Lincolnshire, England.   This book, like promised in the beginning, does show some negative sides to Isaac Newton, but it does not dwell on them. Although I have not read any of Isaac Newton's other biographies to make a comparison, I feel that "The Last Sorcerer" was fair and humanized the man. I still came away with a greater appreciation for Isaac Newton and his work/5.
