Greatest Minds In History


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Aristotle Aristotle Aristotle was a Greek philosopher and scientist born in the city of Stagira, Chalkidice, on the northern periphery of Classical Greece.

I wouldn't even venture to speculate as to his level of intelligence, and he is clearly the most influential thinker of all time (the founder of logic).

One of the first great minds to have lived on this earth.

Probably the greatest human mind ever

Really? He invented LOGIC and you put him down there on the toilet? dude...

22 Muḥammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī

He is not greatest man ever, but he is better than most of those are above in this list

One of the greatest mathmaticians of the world. Father of algebra and algorithms.

23 John Calvin

Calvin was instrumental in the murder of Miguel Servitus. And why? Because he printed pamphlets contrary to the doctrines of Calvin. If Calvin had the true doctrine why engage in murder? The true doctrine can stand alone without violence. Can you imagine Albert Einstein being involved in the murder of Nikola Tesla because he feared his mind and publications? 500 "witches" were executed by burning in just 2 years while Calvin was the "high priest" of Protestant theocracy in Geneva. He was truly a Satanic Character.

Calvin is the only one of these men whose theories, doctrine, has not been overturned.

24 Alan Turing Alan Turing Alan Mathison Turing was a pioneering English computer scientist, mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst and theoretical biologist.

Broke Enigma, father of theoretical computer science and AI, provided a formalisation of the concepts of "algorithm" and "computation" with the Turing machine, when aged 16, Turing encountered Albert Einstein's work; not only did he grasp it, but he extrapolated Einstein's questioning of Newton's laws of motion from a text in which this was never made explicit, worked on on mathematical biology, specifically morphogenesis. He published one paper on the subject called The Chemical Basis of Morphogenesis in 1952, putting forth the Turing hypothesis of pattern formation the theory was experimentally confirmed 60 years after his death.

Computation Theory, the Turing theories and works make possible a all the posterior computation and machines intelligence developments.

He had such a brilliant and beautiful mind, yet still because he was "different" he was treated so inhumanly that it drove him to kill himself. Another great mind ended in such tragedy.

He done many wonders at early age

25 Jesus Christ Jesus Christ Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, Palestine. He was born to Mary, as the bible says "she was found with child of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 1:18). He was both man and God (John 20:28). According to the bible He is God alone (Deuteronomy 6:4). more.

Guys, I understand and respect all opinions, but just because Jesus Christ was God's son and a wise man does not mean he was by any means a genius. It means he had integrity and compassion. This man probably didn't know any mathematics either, and if he did a very basic portion, but, given the time period, that was common. However, since he didn't invent a new way of thinking, redefined our SCIENTIFIC world, or contributed to any SCIENTIFIC principle, he shouldn't be considered to be up here.

Jesus never claimed to be God. In fact he clearly said that the Father was greater than he was. The Bible also says that Jesus was the first of God's creations, and subsequently God used to him to create all other things. Therefore, he must have had an extensive knowledge of science and mathematics, far more than any human could ever have.

Jesus is above the station of all on this list. His words and life still affect the entire world today. Time is calculated starting from his death, and preceding his life. Non is up to the task. He is by far the greatest. The most searched name on the internet.

He created the world.! he says one day you will all bow at his feet; to prove it.influences more minds in history than any one else;.even secular people can't deny that that.billions of people.invented software for life if you want to get technical;

I think the 5th greatest.

Should be top ten

He was a genius really

The greatest CEO in the earth of all time

27 Srinivasa Ramanujan Srinivasa Ramanujan

Srinivasa Ramanujan was an Indian mathematician and autodidact who, with almost no formal training in pure mathematics, made extraordinary contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions

Do some due diligence on this guy folks! The greatest mathematician in the history of humanity!

29 Plato Plato Plato was a philosopher in Classical Greece and the founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world.

If Plato is not in the top 10 - we have problems. Almost western philosophy is a footnote on Plato. Today his concepts and thoughts influence modern society (for good and for bad! ). He is one of most - if the most influential minds of all human history

33 Martin Luther King, Jr.

It would be a mistake to leave out this progressive thinker off any list of greatest minds considering his iconic contribution to equality in the US.

He is a man that had a dream and unfortunately he couldn't see it come true but it did!

Advocate for freedom, human rights and social justice

He is a great man with respected work for decades to come.

35 Blaise Pascal Blaise Pascal Blaise Pascal was a French mathematician, physicist, inventor, writer and Catholic theologian. He was a child prodigy who was educated by his father, a tax collector in Rouen. Pascal's earliest work was in the natural and applied sciences where he made important contributions to the study of fluids, more.
36 William James Sidis

The greatest mind that has ever walked on the face of the earth

37 C. V. Raman
38 Leonhard Euler Leonhard Euler Leonhard Euler was a Swiss mathematician, physicist, astronomer, logician and engineer who made important and influential discoveries in many branches of mathematics like infinitesimal calculus and graph theory while also making pioneering contributions to several branches such as topology and analytic more.
39 Alexander Hamilton Alexander Hamilton
40 Thomas Edison Thomas Edison

Without a formal education he is holding 1093 patent? This man should be among the first three.

Thomas Edison is a professional inventor.

He is one of the most worst inventors ever, he didn't even make the lightbukb which every person thought he did.

I would vote for Nikola Tesla but he doesn't need much help. I just stay here and trash talk Edison. He didn't invent his patents he bought them. He electricuted animals, decided not to use radar that Nikola Tesla invented in WWI. I could go on and on this person should be number l on top dumbest people in history
