  3. History of the Inductive Sciences: From the Earliest to the Present Times.William Whewell - 2010 - Cambridge University Press.
    A central figure in Victorian science, William Whewell held professorships in Mineralogy and Moral Philosophy at Trinity College, Cambridge, before becoming Master of the college in 1841.
