Isaac Newton?s forces which act without a specific medium to work through were a new concept, defying the previously dominant idea of all objects existing within a physical ?ether?. This insight changed how people thought about and studied physics, leading directly to later scientific breakthroughs.
In an age of polymaths, Newton was no exception, he was a student of philosophy in his youth and attempted to provide the same logical underpinning to his scientific work. He even sought a way to square his intellectual convictions with his theological beliefs, which were deep rooted and remained with him all his life.
