3.0 out of 5 stars Preaching to the converted but useful, 30 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Isaac Newtons Freemasonry: The Alchemy of Science and Mysticism (Paperback)
I read about half of this, before I got distracted even though it was not a large work.
Written by a Freemason, it is not necessarily balanced. It simply states Newton was a Freemason without providing much evidence.
And it seems to be written for other Masons, not the general public or the sceptical scholars, who would I imagine, dismiss this kind of work.
However I found it useful as a source, as it covers the ground that Newton scholars leave out.
One suggestion is that since the Royal Society was itself a Masonic construct, its members, would also have been Masons.
My feeling is that what Bauer says here is probably true, Newton's obsession with the temple in Jerusalem and its size and dimensions is very typical of Masonic concerns.
