Isaac Newton
Isaac Newton was an English philosopher, mathematician, physicist and astronomer who was born on 4 January 1643 at Woolsthorpe manor in Grantham and died on 31 March 1727 in Kensington.
Sir Isaac Newton was the originator of scientific theories that revolutionised science, particularly in the fields of optics, mathematics, and above all, mechanics.
He founded what is now known as classical mechanics of which Newton's three laws are the foundation. Simultaneously with Leibniz he invented differential calculus, which he called the method of fluxions, which he used to formalise his description of gravitation as a universal force of attraction.
