The Clockwork God: Isaac Newton and the Mechanical Universe

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 23rd Jan 2018

Isaac Newton saw his demonstration of the regularity of the universe as having great religious significance. Newton’s ideas were initially seen as very supportive of religion; yet within 50 years, they were being seen in a very different light. 

So what are the religious, aesthetic, and scientific implications of Newton’s approach? The latest scholarship will be considered in order to unpack some of the deep questions that are raised by the scientific approach to nature.

No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture.

Cost: Free of Charge
