Isaac Newton: Alchemist Role Model?

Olivia Judson writes about Isaac Newton in today’s New York Times (“The Ten Days of Newton“).  It’s heartening to see an article in a major newspaper discussing some aspect of science in both an informative and entertaining way.

I must confess that I use Sir Isaac Newton as one of my secret justifications for my interest in alchemy, as well as my interest in the interaction of science and religion.  If he could dabble in alchemical studies, I guess it’s OK for me to do the same.  (See Wikipidea’s extensive article on “Isaac Newton’s Occult Studies.”)
