Abstract

This book examines Isaac Newton's changing legacy during the nineteenth century. It focuses on 1820-70, a period that saw the creation of the specialized and secularized role of the 'scientist'. It shows how debates about Newton's character stimulated historical scholarship and led to the development of a new expertise in the history of science.
