Biografier:

Monumental biografi udforsker arven fra tyngdekraftens fader. Af Rune Engelbreth Larsen (Politiken.dk, 24. marts 2013). Anmeldelse af Carl Henrik Koch: Isaac Newton: geniet og mennesket (Lindhardt og Ringhof, 2013, 768 sider).

It was all set in motion by Isaac Newton (Socialist Worker, Issue 1944, 26 March 2005). “Newton’s ideas did not simply challenge people’s common sense. They were also a challenge to the whole worldview of the old order.”

The core of Newton. By Andy Wilson (Socialist Worker Review, Issue 113, October 1988, p.26-27; online at Marxisme.dk). “… Newton played a part in inspiring and shaping one of the forces that makes socialism possible – and that is a much better reason for remembering him than the story about the apple.”
