The forces of darkness and oppression were too well entrenched to be easily dislodged. (1961, p. 27) Evelleen Richards in “‘Metaphorical Mystifications’: the Romantic Gestation of Nature in British Biology” (1990) argues that T. H.

50). Newton encouraged this use himself. In his letter to Bentley of December 10, 1692, Newton claimed that “When I wrote my treatise about our system, I had an eye upon such principles as might work with considering men for the belief of a Deity,” and asserted that some elements of his observation (such as the relative composition of the sun and planets) must be ascribed “to the counsel and contrivance of a voluntary agent”—God (2004, p. 1348).

Because of his character, Dionysius would not take no for an answer from Plato to his requests that Plato return to Sicily.
