Mordechai Feingold is an intellectual and institutional historian of science who is attentive to long-term transformations. His research focuses on how the rise of modern science has transformed Western culture from a humanistic, religious, and unified culture during the sixteenth century into a scientific, technological, secular, and fragmented one by the nineteenth century. He is author of four monographs, including Isaac Newton and the Origin of Civilization (Princeton University Press, 2013, co-authored) and The Newtonian Moment: Isaac Newton and the Making of Modern Culture (Oxford University Press, 2004).
