Faraday as a Discoverer (1893)


Michael Faraday, FRS (22 September 1791 – 25 August 1867) was an English chemist and physicist (or natural philosopher, in the terminology of the time) who contributed to the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. Although Faraday received little formal education and knew little of higher mathematics such as calculus, he was one of the most influential scientists in history. Historians of science refer to him as having been the best experimentalist in the history of science.

This book although biographical describes the life of Faraday mostly as a scientific investigator and discoverer.
