About the Author

Laura Miller is Associate Professor of English at the University of West Georgia.


"Richly sourced and innovative, Reading Popular Newtonianism is a substantial and most welcome contribution to eighteenth-century cultural studies."

--Barbara Benedict, Trinity College, author of Curiosity: A Cultural History of Early Modern Inquiry

" Reading Popular Newtonianism makes a landmark contribution to our understanding of the cultural meanings and social impact of one of the central figures in the history of science and ideas. Far from relying on the work of later interlocutors like Algarotti, Pemberton and MacLaurin, Miller reveals how Newton took advantage of conventional and innovative print tools to make his most complex ideas intelligible from the outset to a much wider range of readers than scholars have ever fully understood. By overlooking the materiality of Newton's publishing career, Miller shows that scholars have fundamentally misunderstood what Newton himself was trying to do and how his work was originally encountered by ordinary readers - and in the process makes important interventions in the history of science, eighteenth-century studies and the history of books and reading in the Age of Enlightenment."

--Mark R. M. Towsey, University of Liverpool, author of Reading the Scottish Enlightenment: Books and their Readers in Provincial Scotland 1750-1820
