Abstract

In this article I argue that Newton did compartmentalise his work in different ways, according to the generic demands placed on him by the disciplines of mixed mathematics and natural philosophy. Although his writings should not be assumed to be completely separate, the implications of the argument are that one should not assume a priori, whatever their reaosn for so doing, that all his writings share some sort of identical quality.
