CANDIDE is a work of satire. In this novel, Voltaire s primary target is the optimistic philosophy of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, one of perhaps the two greatest scientists of his day. The other, greatly admired by Voltaire, was Sir Isaac Newton. Leibniz (satirized in the novel as the character Pangloss) believed that a perfect God could have created only a perfect world-the best of all possible worlds. Voltaire s own experiences and recent destructive events, especially the tragic Lisbon Earthquake of 1755 and the Seven Years War, which began in 1756, led him to disagree. The name of his protagonist-Candide-is from the Latin word CANDIDUS, literally white but figuratively innocent or pure. Voltaire satirizes not only Leibniz but also religious hierarchy, promoters of war, and utopian philosophers in general. While the historical and philosophical components are essential to the purpose of the novel, the humor and wit of Voltaire s writing has made CANDIDE a favorite for casual as well as scholarly readers.

Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727) was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, and alchemist. His treatise Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica, published in 1687, described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion, laying the groundwork for classical mechanics, which dominated the scientific view of the physical universe for the next three centuries. In mechanics, he enunciated the principles of conservation of momentum and angular momentum. In optics, he invented the reflecting telescope and developed a theory of colour based on the observation that a prism decomposes white light into a visible spectrum. He also formulated an empirical law of cooling and studied the speed of sound. In mathematics, he shares the credit with Gottfried Leibniz for the development of the calculus. He also demonstrated the generalized binomial theorem, developed the so-called Newton s method for approximating the zeroes of a function, and contributed to the study of power series.

What do the Fourth Crusade, the exploration of the New World, secret excavations of the Holy Land, and the pontificate of Innocent the Third, all have in common? Answer: Venice and the Templars. What do they have in common with Jesus, Gottfried Leibniz, Sir Isaac Newton, Rene Descartes, and the Earl of Oxford? Answer: Egypt and a body of doctrine known as Hermeticism. In this book, noted author and researcher Joseph P Farrell takes the reader on a journey through the hidden history of the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and early Enlightenment, connecting the dots between Venice, international banking, the Templars, and hidden knowledge, drawing out the connections between the notorious Venetian Council of Ten, little known Venetian voyages to the New World, and the sack of Constantinople during the Fourth Crusade. That hidden role of Venice and Hermeticism reached far and wide, into the plays of Shakespeare (a.k.a. Edward DeVere), Earl of Oxford, into the quest of the three great mathematicians of the Early Enlightenment for a lost form of analysis, and back into the end of the classical era, to little known Egyptian influences at work during the time of Jesus.

Book Description: New York : Nan A. Talese/Doubleday, 2006. 1st American Edition. Description: xi, 176 p. : ill. ; 19 cm. Includes bibliographical references (p. [169]-170) and index. Subjects: Newton, Isaac, Sir (1642-1727) --Physicists --Great Britain --Biography. Summary: When Newton was not yet twenty-five years old, he formulated calculus, hit upon the idea of gravity, and discovered that white light was made up of all the colors of the spectrum. By 1678, Newton designed a telescope to study the movement of the planets and published Principia, a milestone in the history of science, which set forth his famous laws of motion and universal gravitation. Newton's long-time research on calculus, finally made public in 1704, triggered a heated controversy as European scientists accused him of plagiarizing the work of the German scientist Gottfried Leibniz. In this third volume in the acclaimed Ackroyd's Brief Lives series, bestselling author Peter Ackroyd provides an engaging portrait of Isaac Newton, illuminating what we think we know about him and describing his seminal contributions to science and mathematics. A man of wide and eclectic interests, Newton blurred the borders between natural philosophy and speculation: he was as passionate about astrology as astronomy and dabbled in alchemy, while his religious faith was never undermined by his determination to interpret a modern universe as a mathematical universe. By brining vividly to life a somewhat puritanical man whose desire to experiment and explore bordered on the obsessive, Peter Ackroyd demonstrates the unique brilliance of Newton's perceptions, which changed our understanding of the world.

Book Description: The University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1963. Softcover. Book Condition: Good. 191 pages. Softcover. Good condition. MATHEMATICS. Presents a radically different approach to the teaching of calculus. In sharp contrast to the methods of his time, Otto Toeplitz did not teach calculus as a static system of techniques and facts to be memorized. Instead, he drew on his knowledge of the history of mathematics and presented calculus as an organic evolution of ideas beginning with the discoveries of Greek scholars, such as Archimedes, Pythagoras, and Euclid, and developing through the centuries in the work of Kepler, Galileo, Fermat, Newton, and Leibniz. Through this unique approach, Toeplitz summarized and elucidated the major mathematical advances that contributed to modern calculus. Translated into English from the German by Luise Langer. Includes an Index.

In mechanics, he enunciated the principles of conservation of momentum and angular momentum. In optics, he invented the reflecting telescope and developed a theory of colour based on the observation that a prism decomposes white light into a visible spectrum. He also formulated an empirical law of cooling and studied the speed of sound. In mathematics, he shares the credit with Gottfried Leibniz for the development of the calculus. He also demonstrated the generalized binomial theorem, developed the so-called Newtons method for approximating the zeroes of a function, and contributed to the study of power series.

Main Title: The calculus wars / Jason Bardi. Published/Created: Harpenden, Herts : High Stakes Publishing, 2006. Description: 288 p. ; 19 cm. ISBN: 184344030X ABOUT THE BOOK: Newton, Leibniz, and the Greatest Mathematical Clash of All Time Now regarded as the bane of many college students' existence, calculus was one of the most important mathematical innovations of the seventeenth century. But a dispute over its discovery sowed the seeds of discontent between two of the greatest scientific giants of all time — Sir Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. Today Newton and Leibniz are generally considered the twin independent inventors of calculus, and they are both credited with giving mathematics its greatest push forward since the time of the Greeks. Had they known each other under different circumstances, they might have been friends. But in their own lifetimes, the joint glory of calculus was not enough for either and each declared war against the other, openly and in secret. This long and bitter dispute has been swept under the carpet by historians — perhaps because it reveals Newton and Leibniz in their worst light — but The Calculus Wars tells the full story in narrative form for the first time. This vibrant and gripping account ultimately exposes how these twin mathematical giants were brilliant, proud, at times mad and, in the end, completely human. Bookseller Inventory # Math3003
Book Description: The University of Chicago Press, Chicago and London, 2007. Softcover. Book Condition: New. 201 pages. Softcover. New book. MATHEMATICS. When first published posthumously in 1963, this book presented a radically different approach to the teaching of calculus. In sharp contrast to the methods of his time, Otto Toeplitz did not teach calculus as a static system of techniques and facts to be memorized. Instead, he drew on his knowledge of the history of mathematics and presented calculus as an organic evolution of ideas beginning with the discoveries of Greek scholars, such as Archimedes, Pythagoras, and Euclid, and developing through the centuries in the work of Kepler, Galileo, Fermat, Newton, and Leibniz. Through this unique approach, Toeplitz summarized and elucidated the major mathematical advances that contributed to modern calculus. Translated into English from the German by Luise Lange. Includes an Index. Reissued for the first time since 1981 and updated with a new Foreword, this classic text in the field of mathematics is experiencing a resurgence of interest among students and educators of calculus today. (Key Words: Calculus, Otto Toeplitz, Luise Lange, Mathematics, Archimedes, Pythagoras, Euclid, Galileo, Fermat, Sir Isaac Newton, and Leibniz, Tycho Brahe, Galileo, Cavalieri, david Bressoud, Gottfried Kothe).
