Who are the greatest scientists throughout the ages and why? From Archimedes to Newton to Einstein to Hawking. The Scientific 100 furnishes the fascinating answers. In vivid biographical sketches that provide both historical and scientific context, the author chronicles the lives and accomplishments of the world's most influential figures in science. And in the tradition of the Citadel Press 100 series, he then ranks them in order of influence. Chosen with the aid and consultation of prominent scientists and historians of science, these figures represent the broadest possible range of endeavor and accomplishment. The list is made up of physicists, astronomers, physicians, chemists, biologists, psychologists, and anthropologists. It includes those who discovered the laws of motion, principles of chemistry, structure of the atom, shape of the universe, evolution of life, as well as the afflictions of both body and mind.
