In the early 1690s, Roger North’s search for truth and the knowledge of human nature was interrupted by three events: his reading of Newton’s books on mechanics and optics; his correspondence with the Norfolk clergyman Samuel Clarke; and his reading and response to Clarke’s new publication on the philosophy of the Godhead. Kassler details the challenges that these events presented to North’s values, and includes editions of North’s notes on Newton’s books.
