Why Newton had no friedly word for common sense
Blog-Reference not recoverable
“Could all the phaenomena of nature be deduced from only thre [sic] or four general suppositions there might be great reason to allow those suppositions to be true.” (Newton, quoted in Westfall, 2008, p. 642)
This does not sound like a plea for induction or common sense (see the Newton page for more).
