Th e Conduitt papers do not add much to the Stukeley memoir on Newton’s boyhood, but the stories they preserve occasionally have a meaning that transcends the factual material they were intended to convey. Reminiscing to Conduitt, Newton idealized his mother and talked about her strong character; stressed his littleness in anec­ dotes connected with his birth in contrast with his later great estate; made his survival appear a marvel. O f all the anecdotes he shared with Conduitt, one perhaps is crucial for an understanding of New­ ton’s character; it is about the school bully whom he, though ordi­ narily passive and fearful, finally worsted and to whom he then meted out punishment.

Joseph Glanvill proposed experimental science instead of bloody destructive war as a proper avenue to fame and glory. On the eve of achieving a purpose of high seriousness, science was sometimes still play both at the university and in the country­ side. Men like W ren and Hooke were moved in these years by the same curiosity about instruments that were half toys, half useful objects, that piqued Newton as a youth. Puritan educators like Dr. ” W hen the diarist John Evelyn visited W ilkins at Oxford on July 13, 1654, he was intrigued by a great variety of machines built with W ilkins’ mathematical magic.
