Sir Isaac Newton
Sir Isaac Newton was a product of the expansion of the full swing British Empire and the
grand old Universities such as Cambridge and Oxford in the era when these institutions were
producing a lot of mathematicians and scientists. Being a mathematician, a physicist, an
alchemist, astronomer, a natural philosopher, and a theologian, Newton was and is still
recognized as among the most influential men in human history. His publication in 1687, titled
the “Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica,” which is commonly known as the
“Principia” is acknowledged for being among the books that have fully influenced the science
history, as well as dominating the physical universe scientific view.
Although greatly synonymous in the face of the public with gravity and the apple tree
story, Newton is still a giant to the mathematicians across the world as he largely influenced the
successive mathematical development path. Remarkably, in 1665 to 1666, the era of Great
Plague, Newton, young at the time, came up with the new light theory, learned about the
quantified gravitation, which was mathematics new approach revolution, and discovered the
infinitesimal calculus (Sharma, 503). His ca...
