Isaac Newton’s Freemasonry: The Alchemy of Science and Mysticism

Isaac Newton’s Freemasonry: The Alchemy of Science and Mysticism

Freemasonry, as a fraternal order of scientists and philosophers, emerged in the 17th century and represented something new – an amalgam of alchemy and science that allowed the creative genius of Isaac Newton and his contemporaries to flourish… In “Isaac Newton’s Freemasonry”, Alain Bauer presents the swirl of historical, sociological and religious influences that sparked the spiritual ferment and transformation of that time. His research shows that Freemasonry represented a crossroads between science and spirituality and became the vehicle for promoting spiritual and intellectual egalitarianism. Isaac Newton was seminal in the “invention” of this new form of Freemasonry, which allowed Newton and other like-minded associates to free themselves of the church’s monopoly on the intellectual milieu of the time.
