Yes, give it context.
Which has inspired me to try to better practice what I preach, and dive into
a book on my shelve:
"The Sleepwalkers - A History of Man's changing Vision of the Universe"
Arthur Koestler, 1959
It covers the period: Beginning <= Newton
With about 25% of its 600 pages focused on the work of Kepler.
I am expecting that digesting this work will make solving the equation a
more meaningful exercise than that of just solving an equation.
