Yeah, that's right
Who's the greatest scientist of all time according to your opinion and why?
Either Sir Issac Newton or Alber Einstien
Bernoulli. All 27 of them.
Me, because I say so.
Galileo obviously, for mathematicizing science. Everything Newton, Einstein & all the rest afterwards was an example of Galileo's philosophy & nothing more. Descartes gets an honourable mention for having simialr views.
I'll say Moonbear
might be at some points, but by the greatest I rather mean, a person who has accomplished the most for all the people and science altogether.
something like Leibniz and Newton, Thomas Edison, Alan Turing, yomamma
and so on :rofl:
Socrates, for his philosophy of emphasis on reasoning things through.
Issac Newton, Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking are my picks.
Why obnoxiously self-aggrandizing individuals like Feynman and Stephen Hawking gets onto these lists surprise me, so I'll go for either Newton or Bohr.
Come to think of it, no one was more obnoxious than Newton, so I'll stick with Bohr..He was a nice guy
I'd have to say Einstein. However, I'm reading Chadwick's biography now and I'm warming to him
I'll second that!
His "falling apple" insight unified the heavens and the earth, forever bringing both out of the dark ages of spiritualism and into the light of science.
Why does it matter if they were nice?
Though I will second the wonder as to why Hawking would be even mentioned.
Why does it matter to make all these idiotic ranking lists Americans are so pathologically fond of?
Are we talking physicist or scientist here?
I would choose Newton, Hands down. The only one that comes close is Galileo.
Separate names with a comma.
