Newton Project Canada

Newton Project Canada

Housed within the University of King’s College, the Canadian arm of the Newton Project (based in the United Kingdom) supports its international counterpart by providing a centre of operations for Canadian-based transcription work on Newton’s unpublished manuscripts, as well as to seek funding for both entities.

The Newton Project was founded in 1998 and is based at Sussex University, where a team is working to provide online access to Newton’s scientific, theological, alchemical and administrative papers, with an initial focus on the influential scientist’s previously-unpublished theological writings. By providing instant access to these non-canonical writings of this early modern natural philosopher, the Newton Project is leading a scholarly revolution that is changing the way we view the figure many see as the father of modern science.
