    A couple of nit picks John:

    Slide #19: Alchemy & Theology 1670 – 1684

    The theology studies certainly started earlier and almost certainly went on longer. The alchemy studies started in 1669 and went on till 1696 when Newton moved to London.

    Slide #44: The Calculus Dispute: 1713 The publication of the RSL’s report vindicates Newton.

    Maybe you mention this in your lecture but you should mention that Newton wrote the RSL’s report.

  2. Thony,

    For the alchemy, I chose core dates. And, yes, I mention Newton’s authorship.
