A symposium will be held in London at the Royal Society on March 21, 1997 to discuss recent developments in our understanding of Newton's scientific work. This meeting is sponsored jointly by the Royal Society and the History of Science Society (USA). The talks presented at this symposium will cover some of the recent advances in our understanding of Newton's two great masterpieces, the Principia and the Opticks. To a great extent, these advances have been made possible by the editions published during the past 40 years of Newton's correspondence, mathematical and optical papers, and variant readings of the third edition of his Principia.

This symposium will acquaint historians and philosophers of science and practicing scientists and mathematicians with these new developments, and that it will thereby stimulate further activity and progress in Newtonian Scholarship.

This meeting is supported by grants from the Royal Society, History of Science Society and the National Science Foundation.

All are welcome. Those wishing to attend should fill out and return the registration form.
