Newton and Empiricism

Edited by Zvi Biener and Eric Schliesser

  • Volume effectively makes the case that Newtonianism and empiricism were not only two prongs of the same effort but have a more complex and nuanced relationship than previously thought.
  • Original essays break new ground in exploring Isaac Newton's relation to both philosophical and scientific empiricism from the 17th century to the present.
  • Book treats philosophical Empiricists alongside empiricist practitioners to form a broad, comprehensive view of "empiricism."
