Newton is principally known for his invention of calculus and 3 laws of motion, thus pointing the way in science towards mechanics and the Industrial revolution, about a century later. 

Newton lived in the period of the English revolution, and was even a member of a Parliament, where he said very little. 

One of the best descriptions of Newton is Einstein's essay of 1927 "Newton" .
