in part in his extension of the method to include the other functions then in
common use, in his recognition of the fact that the inverse problem of
differentiation could be used in solving the problem of ... On the history of fluxions
in Great Britain, beginning with Newton, the best work is F. Cajori, A History of the
Conceptions of Limits and Fluxions in Great Britain from Newton to Woodhouse,

This was followed in 1894 by Cajori's History of Mathematics, and two years later
by his History of the Concepts of Limits and Fluxions in Great Britain from Newton
to Woodhouse (1896; repr. 1919; Japanese trans. 1929). He also published a
History of Physics in 1899. Meanwhile, Moritz Cantor invited Cajori to contribute a
section (§20) on arithmetic to volume four of his monumental Vorlesungen iiber

What Newton has done is to supply us with a purely physical concept,
instantaneous velocity, that seems to lead to a paradox when naively defined.
Many mathematicians during the eighteenth century saw no easy answers to
such problems. They sought to eliminate the “infinitesimal” from the foundations
of calculus and tried to find purely algebraic ways of obtaining 6Florian Cajori, A

NE of the great polemics of philosophy is a tract called The Analyst, issued in
1734 by the famous Irish metaphysician Bishop Berkeley. The object of the attack
was the new calculus, especially the concept of the “fixed infinitesimal,” as set
forth by Isaac Newton in the Principia, in an appendix to the Opticks, and in other
writings. Berkeley, though not a ... Florian Cajori, A History 0/ the Conception 0/
