    Lister and Koch should make most lists.

    Robert Lanza.
    The need for an intelligible world begins with the fearfulness of pre-philosophical, pre-literate societies facing an unpredictable world of change and trying to make sense of it.

    Jung definitely, one of the first person to look at the mind in an analytical way. Actually, by that token, maybe Freud too, even if his theories are currently disregarded.

    Nominated is Carlos Finlay:

    Read "The American Plague" to get a sense of how serious was the threat of Yellow Fever in those days, literally "Bring out your dead!" stuff from Monty Python, but all too real.

    Good question, good thread.
