Burtt (1892-1989) offers a historical study of the philosophy of early modern science, locating its key assumptions as they emerge, and following them out to their classic formulation in the metaphysical paragraphs of Isaac Newton. Doubleday Anchor Books published the 1924, 1932, and 1954 editions as The Metaphysical Foundations of Modern Physical Science. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
