    ARCHIVES INTERNATIONALES D'HISTOIRE DES IDEES/ INTERNATIONAL ARCHIVES OF THE
    HISTORY OF IDEAS -- 188

    This volume contains eleven essays by eminent scholars which focus on
    Newton's theology, his study of alchemy, the early reception of
    Newtonianism, and the history of Newton scholarship. It includes unique
    accounts of the attempts over the last quarter of the twentieth century, to
    publish Sir Isaac Newton's theological manuscripts, including an essay by
    the eminent historian of philosophy, Richard H. Popkin, regarding his
    involvement in this enterprise, as well as essays by Rob Iliffe and Scott
    Mandelbrote, the founding Editorial Directors of the Newton Manuscript
    Project, recently set up to publish Newton's unpublished manuscripts for
    the first time. The volume also features the emerging interpretations of
    Newton's seminal theological thought, and its relationship to his
    scientific work, as well as other important essays which illuminate
    Newton's influence upon so many of the complex and seemingly paradoxical
    patterns of the Enlightenment.
