The Warriors Grow Up



‘No great mathematician is so difficult to study as Newton.’ wrote Clifford Truesdell at the beginning of the 1960s [Truesdell 1984, S. 269]. This is no longer true today since with [Whiteside 1967–81] we now have Newton’s mathematical writings in a selection of eight thick and large-sized volumes in English language. Newton’s correspondence is available in [Turnbull 1959–77] in eight just as voluminous volumes in the English language, and with [Westfall 2006] there exists a definitive biography upholding all scientific standards.
