This book provides an analysis of the concepts of space and time in the thought and writings of Sir Isaac Newton, attempting to illustrate his portrayal of both of these as sacred, not merely material entities. After analyzing Newton's principal texts, the author proceeds to consider his understandings in relation to the philosophical and theological work of American critical conservative Paul Elmer More, demonstrating their agreement concerning the havoc wrought in the modern world by the illegitimate extensions of hypothetical science into philosophies of life and society. Finally, the book considers the implications of viewing space and time, with Newton and others, in a sacred manner, and the resulting limitations on human knowledge. This book offers an interesting contribution to current debates concerning the relationship between science and religion, and will appeal to those who study the philosophy of religion, theology, and the history of science.
