Abstract

Drawing on recent work by Weatherall (2018), I provide an explicit presentation of Newtonian gravitation theory set on Maxwellian spacetime which avoids reference to any derivative operators or equivalence classes thereof. The resulting theory bears a close relationship to Dewar’s (2018) "Maxwell gravitation"; it also sheds light on arguments by Wallace (2020) concerning the relationship between Newton-Cartan theory and Saunders’s (2013) vector relationism.
