Transcript of Isaac Newton
Newton's life 1
Isaac Newton was born to a poor family. Since he was not a good farmer, he was sent to Cambridge to become a preacher. There, he studied mathematics, he was influenced by Euclid. Later, he was kicked out of Cambridge due to the plague. After he left, this is where he made his most significant discoveries. He never did though, publish his works. He suffered a mental break down in 1675.
Newton's life 2
Newton invented a scientific method that was universal in its scope. He presented his methodology as a set of four rules for scientific reasoning.
1. We are to admit no more causes of natural things such as are both true and sufficient to explain their appearances.
2. The same natural effects must be assigned to the same causes.
3.Qualaties of bodies are to be esteemed as universal.
4. Proportions deduced from observations of phenomena should be viewed as accurate until other phenomena contradict them.
Isaac Newton died in 1727.
It is therefore no exaggeration to identify Newton as the most important contributor to the development of modern science.
After everything that has been said, this is why I think Sir Issac Newton is the most important Enlightenment thinker.
Isaac Newton was born on 1642 in England
