Complete title: A Fair, Candid, and Impartial State of the Case between Sir Isaac Newton and Mr. Hutchinson, in which is shown, How far a system of Physics is capable of Mathematical Demonstration; how far Sir Isaac's, as such a system, has that Demonstration; and consequently, what regard Mr. Hutchinson's claim may deserve to have paid it. First edition. The author was Bishop of Norwich and the leader of the Hutchinsonian opponents to Newton and wrote the best statement of their case. Hutchinson (1674-1737), author of Moses's Principia (1724) , denied Newton's theory of gravitation as involving the existence of a vacuum and claimed that the laws of nature were under the power of the Creator.
