Could he whose rules the rapid comet bind, describe or fix one movement of his mind?
In his preface to the Principia, Isaac Newton speculated that not just the motions of the planets, the Moon and the tides could be explained by the forces of attraction and repulsion but all other natural phenomena as well (Pope’s eulogy to Newton, quoted above, was rather more sceptical). Although Newton himself was cautious about these as yet unknown forces, others in many fields set out to become the Newtons of their time. After all, if Newton could explain celestial events through a simple gravitational force, more mysterious areas of inquiry should be open to the same approach.
