    English mathematician and philosopher. Best known as the defining figure of the philosophical school known as process philosophy, which today has found application to a wide variety of disciplines, including ecology, theology, education, physics, biology, economics, and psychology, among other areas. Wikipedia

  • Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz

    Prominent German polymath and one of the most important logicians, mathematicians and natural philosophers of the Enlightenment. As a representative of the seventeenth-century tradition of rationalism, Leibniz developed, as his most prominent accomplishment, the ideas of differential and integral calculus, independently of Isaac Newton's contemporaneous developments. Wikipedia

  • Pierre-Simon Laplace

    French scholar and polymath whose work was important to the development of engineering, mathematics, statistics, physics, astronomy, and philosophy. He summarized and extended the work of his predecessors in his five-volume Mécanique Céleste (Celestial Mechanics) (1799–1825). Wikipedia

  • French physicist and mathematician who was one of the founders of the science of classical electromagnetism, which he referred to as "electrodynamics". Also the inventor of numerous applications, such as the solenoid and the electrical telegraph. Wikipedia

  • David Hilbert

    German mathematician and one of the most influential mathematicians of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Hilbert discovered and developed a broad range of fundamental ideas in many areas, including invariant theory, the calculus of variations, commutative algebra, algebraic number theory, the foundations of geometry, spectral theory of operators and its application to integral equations, mathematical physics, and the foundations of mathematics (particularly proof theory). Wikipedia

  • Louis Poinsot

    French mathematician and physicist. The inventor of geometrical mechanics, showing how a system of forces acting on a rigid body could be resolved into a single force and a couple. Wikipedia

  • Hermann Weyl

    German mathematician, theoretical physicist and philosopher. Spent in Zürich, Switzerland, and then Princeton, New Jersey, he is associated with the University of Göttingen tradition of mathematics, represented by David Hilbert and Hermann Minkowski. Wikipedia

  • Bibliography of E. T. Whittaker

    British mathematician, physicist, historian of science, and philosopher who authored three titles that remain in circulation over a century after their initial publications. His bibliography includes several books and over one hundred published papers on a variety of subjects, including mathematics, astronomy, mathematical physics, theoretical physics, philosophy, and theism. Wikipedia

  • François Arago

    French mathematician, physicist, astronomer, freemason, supporter of the carbonari and politician. Born at Estagel, a small village of 3,000 near Perpignan, in the département of Pyrénées-Orientales, France, where his father held the position of Treasurer of the Mint. Wikipedia

  • Henri Bergson

    French philosopher who was influential in the tradition of continental philosophy, especially during the first half of the 20th century until the Second World War. Known for his arguments that processes of immediate experience and intuition are more significant than abstract rationalism and science for understanding reality. Wikipedia

  • Tullio Levi-Civita

    Italian mathematician, most famous for his work on absolute differential calculus (tensor calculus) and its applications to the theory of relativity, but who also made significant contributions in other areas. Pupil of Gregorio Ricci-Curbastro, the inventor of tensor calculus. Wikipedia
