This is the second volume of a six volume compendium on the correspondences of John Wallis (1616-1703). Wallis was Savilian Professor of Geometry at Oxford from 1649 until his death, and was a founding member of the Royal Society and a central figure in the scientific and intellectual history of England. Along with his role as decipherer on the Parlimentary side during the Civil War, he prepared the ground for the discovery of infinitesimal calculus by Newton and Leibniz and played a decisive role in modernization of English mathematics. This volume provides fascinating insight into the life of Wallis through his correspondences with intellectual and political figures of the latter part of the 17th century.

Book Description Oxford UP, 2005. Condition: New. The second volume of Wallis's correspondence covers a period which saw Charles II's accession to the throne and the emergence of the Royal Society, of which Wallis was an original - and very active - member. He writes regularly to the Society's secretary, Henry Oldenburg, on various scientific matters, and to Robert Boyle, with whom he discusses his attempts to teach a deaf-mute young man to speak distinctly. He also spends much of this period dealing with legal business for the University. Seller Inventory # 279724
