Abstract


Since the second half of 20th century, Newtonian scholarship has shown that besides Newtonian interest in physics he also focused his mind in areas such chronology, biblical exegesis and alchemy. Being these fields labeled as "scientific" and "non scientific" ones, historians had reconstructed Newton's work either holistically or unilaterally. The main task of the paper is to show the unsuitable facts of the above mentioned ways. In addition, this paper harvest the partial results of a wider study currently being developed by the author about physics and metaphysics in Newton’s thought.
