Rob Iliffe (University of Sussex)
"Few people are generally aware that Isaac Newton (1642-1727) believed that his most significant scientific research concerned the relationship between the mind and the body, rather than mathematical physics of the Principia. By understanding how we moved our own bodies, Newton believed that we could understand both how God had created the world, and also how he intervened in the cosmos on a daily basis. This private research embraced his early alchemical work as well as later work written up in drafts of the 'Queries' to the various editions of his Opticks."
