Oscillations and Analogies: Thomas Young, MD, FRS, Genius.
Martindale, Colin
American Psychologist, v56 n4 p342-45 Apr 2001
Thomas Young was a renowned genius in his time who did important work in many scientific disciplines. In today's specialized environment, scientists in each discipline do not appreciate his work. Despite his current obscurity, Young exemplifies traits found in a first-order genius (analogical thinking, high intelligence, hard work, wide interests, distaste for traditional dogmas, and high self-esteem).
