His work laid the foundation on which his successors, notably Isaac Newton, built the modern picture of the universe, that held until Einstein.The author shows us a Rabelaisian world...chaotic, muddled, and dirty.

He extracted truth from superstition, and this story, in Banvilles hands, is a triumph, heroic and exuberant.
