PARTIAL BIOGRAPHY OF ISAAC NEWTON DEALING 
biography of Isaac Newton dealing his time in London she takes this approach with mixed successThe best thing is that we see of this time in Newton s life which tends to be dealt with relatively uickly in standard scientific biographies as his focus was primarily dealing with the Royal Mint and the Royal Society That the word royal appears twice here is no coincidence as we see a picture of a new Newton emerging etting away from his near monastic scientific life at Cambridge to become a social creature with a distinct interest in keeping in with high society including the royal family Perhaps the most interesting thing for me was the way that Fara brings in a topic that I ve rarely seen mentioned in Newton biographies slavery Newton might not have been actively involved but the slave trade was pervasively connected to the wealth of the nation and it misses a significant aspect of what shaped his life and wealth just as does the discussion of Newton s politicsUnfortun.

Patricia Fara º 1 SUMMARY

R plates section that I could see the painting and even there it was too small it would have been far better to just have had the platesAlthough it s important to describe those around Newton to ive his life context there seemed too much on other people either because they re in the painting or were influential in HIS LIFE I WANTED NEWTON IT S ALSO THE life I wanted Newton It s also the that Fara s politics came through uite heavy handedly for example in the strange comment that in a largely ungendered English language it s notable that countries are feminine I ve never heard anyone refer to a country as she Similarly while the exploration of the relevance of the slave trade to the life of the well off of the period was one of the best parts of the book Fara mostly made it seem as if this was all about Europeans capturing Africans to make them slaves rather than purchasing those who had been enslaved by other Africans this wasn t a one sided tradeOverall then there are ood elements here and I welcome attempts to look at creative ways to frame scientific history but all creativity involves a risk of failure and for me this one didn

Ately for me the whole didn t work brilliantly The text felt uite fragmented and rambling in part because of Fara s framing approach which is to use a Hogarth painting of children putting on a play in John Conduitt s drawing room as a Hogarth painting of children putting on a play in John Conduitt s drawing room as way of exploring different aspects of Newton s life even though the painting dates from after Newton s death The relevance of the painting is partly that a bust of Newton features in it partly that Conduitt married Newton s niece who had lived in Newton a bust of Newton features in it partly that Conduitt married Newton s niece who had lived in Newton London household and also that Conduitt took on Newton s role as Master of the Mint There are also royalty and aristocracy in the painting reflecting the social climbing It s true that the painting does reflect some links to aspects of Newton s London life but still the use of it feels forced not helped by the atrocious uality of the black and white on page reproduction of the painting in the book Such images have improved in uality over the years but this was so murky you could hardly make out that there were people in it It wasn t I ot half way through the book and realised that all the on page images were in a colou.
