Although remembered now for his influence on the history of freemasonry and the formation of its Grand Lodge, John Theophilus Desaguliers (1683-1744) was also a prominent advocate and popularizer of Newtonian experimental philosophy. In this biography, Carpenter shows how Desaguliers, a Huguenot who came to London from La Rochelle in his youth, became a gifted orator, a purveyor of technical skills and a significant figure in the intellectual life of early 18th-century London.
