For one thinker along The Path to Newton, write a 500 word (or so) profile, discussing the accomplishments (or mis-steps) of your chosen thinker, and at least one aspect of how the state of the world he worked in influenced his thinking. For example, if you choose Isaac Newton, you would talk about how he came to his theory of gravity, and how being a member of the Royal Society made that easier.
To facilitate no one choosing the same thinker, please use this Google Doc to stake your claim to one (and only one) person. You might want to choose early, even before you have time to write, if you're interested in a particular person.
Please post your profile to PredictionX.org, and add the link as part of this assignment, at https://predictionx.org/profiles-thinkers-path-newton. Please contact Jais Brohinsky if you have questions about this assignment, or about the Path to Newton.
