During his stay in London he became friend with a famous philosopher, John Locke, and a brilliant young mathematician, Nicolas Fatio. Four years after, Newton suffered a serious nervous disorder. After his recovery Newton was looking for a new position in London. In 1696, with the help of a fellow of Trinity, Newton was appointed Warden and then Master of the Mind. In 1703 Hook died and Newton was elected president of the Royal Society.
Hobbes was hired by the Cavendish family to tutor the Earls of Devonshire. While working for the Cavendish family, Hobbes wrote his famous book Leviathan. In this book he discussed the idea of ‘state of nature’ which is the concept that man without rule is chaos. His idea that monarchy is the only logical form of rule was influenced by his surroundings. Locke, Hobbes’s opposing philosopher, was born years later on August 29, 1632, in Wrington, Somerset, England.
Two years later he was appointed as a mathematical professor. Then in 1668 Isaac’s reflecting telescope that brought him to attention. During the mid of the 1660’s he constructed a variety of experiments on light. Then in 1687 he published his greatest work the “Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy”. This was the first discovery he published in 1687.
Martin Luther was a theologian, he was born in November 10, 1483, and he died on February 18, 1546. His birth and death both took place in Eisleben, Germany. Martin Luther became one of the most influential figures in Christian history when he began the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century. Hans and Margarette Luther, were of peasant linage, but Hans had some success as a miner and ore smelter. His parents intended him for a law career, but he became a monk and a theology professor instead.
In 1926, at the age of 13, he shifted on to Sherburne School. Turing's natural intelligence towards mathematics and science did not earn him respect from some of the teachers at Sherburne. His headmaster wrote to his parents that the head master hopes that Turing will not fall between two stools. If he is to stay at public school he must aim at becoming educated. Turing continued to show remarkable abilities of him in the studies he loved the most solving advanced problems in 1927 without having studied even elementary calculus.
Kira Farmer AP11 Research Paper 3.19.2015 Galileo: The Father of Modern Science Every day, students, teachers, doctors, and scientists ponder the great minds of the past with respect. Perhaps one would consider Albert Einstein, Aristotle, Archimedes, Nikola Tesla, or Sir Isaac Newton. How many of today’s world population would consider Galileo Galilei to be the world’s most renowned and influential scientist in world history? Not only did Galileo invent hundreds of things society still uses today. He also put his safety, sanity, and freedom on the line so that the rest of the world and the future world could have truth.
The Theory of Relativity is one of the most powerful and important theories in history. Albert Einstein is known for being the world 's most intelligent human that ever existed. But, ever wondered why was he considered intelligent? Well, that question can have a huge variety of answers, however his theories make up part of the answer. Albert Einstein invented The Theory of Relativity in 1905, which changed our whole idea about how gravity works.
In America he struggled to fit in until that one day the British attacked us and Alexander decided to help on the local American army where he met friends like Hercules Mulligan. After enrolling in the army George washington admired this young boy and promoted him to aide-de-camp, Hamilton accepted. He soon quit from the army after an argument with the General and started a law firm. Later he got married to Elizabeth Schuyler and had eight children. (bio.com) After an argument with Aaron Burr Alexander Hamilton got challenged to a duel.
Although Poincaré’s technical works contributed a great deal of valuable information, Poincaré as an author was not known for his contributions in that field. Instead, Poincaré gained his fame from the papers he published in popular philosophy and science journals (Mawhin, Jean). The papers published in popular philosophy and science journals mainly dealt with how logic should be applied in mathematics, what the foundations of certain branches of math were, and the newest advancements in the field of physics (Mawhin,
It can be argued that the necessity to have readily available college bound population goes back as far as shortly after the end of the civil war when Charles W. Elliot first held the presidential office over Harvard University. Elliot held the longest presidency at Harvard, his tenure spanned between 1869 and 1909 upon his retirement. Initially, Elliot did not favor support for public education mainly because of poor student college-readiness and Harvard’s feeder system was made up of private college preparatory schools. Interestingly, after growing competition in recruiting students for new institutions such as Stanford, Cornell, MIT amongst others Elliot revisited his position (Christensen, 2011). His concerns for about public education lead him to hold regular faculty assemblies between Harvard faculty and high school faculty in which he proposed for high schools to adopt a Harvard developed curriculum to better prepare students for post-secondary education.
