Anonymous. Contemporary Review. Cheam: Apr 2004. Vol. 284, Iss. 1659; pg. 253, 1 pgs Isaac newton. James Gleick. Fourth Estate. £15.00. xii + 289 pages. ISBN 0-00-716317-7. The author is in no doubt that Newton 'discovered more of the essential core of human knowledge than anyone before or after'. He was 'the chief architect of the modern world. He answered the ancient philosophical riddles of light and motion, and he effectively discovered gravity'. He invented calculus and physics. 'What Newton learned remains the essence of what we know, as if by our own intuition'. Yet he was an isolated, reclusive man; he published almost nothing; he was fascinated by the occult; he devoted much time to alchemy and unorthodox theology; he knew the place of chaotic forces in life even though his theories are referred to as 'Newton's laws', he died a wealthy man but intestate. In our own day, Mr Gleick argues, Einstein did not overturn Newton's work but 'buttressed and extended' it. The author excels in describing his hero's life in the context of the age in which he lived and he shows that Newton the man was not simply the embodiment of the scientific legacy he left: Newton was, he argues, no Newtonian. In this well-rounded biography Mr Gleick also shows how Newton's discoveries and methods continue to shape our world today. (T.W.B.)
