Yup, but that's not what I meant by natural at all. Lewis was a Christian that put his biblical beliefs into the senses of the world around him.

I'm pretty sure C.S. Lewis was baptised by the Church of Ireland, then he stopped believing in Christianity, then when he was 30-something he went back because of Tolkien.

I'm glad y'all bring up Tolkien because I thought about him when I was making my original list but didn't add him because I don't know as much about him.

Absolutely no attacks on others' beliefs or name calling and you will be polite. Polite and constructive discussion is welcome.

To start the thread, in no particular order:
-John Locke, for his political work on separating government powers, but especially on his thoughts on rights of man.
-David Ricardo, for his work on economics and rationalizing free trade through the theory of comparative advantage.
-Adam Smith, for his work on the observation of markets and father of modern economics.
-Hippocrates, as the father of Western medicine. An obvious choice for medical student.
-Milton Friedman, for his academic work (on monetary theory especially) and for his political work in an era where the intellectual climate was against him.

I dont understand the ricardo one. Why not take krugman instead? Or those others with better models than Ricardo?.

My list
- John nash for game theory
-Paul krugman for his trade and new economic growth theories (not his macro stuff)
-f.a. hayek for his work on the austrian business cycle theory as well as the economic calculation problem.

Ricardo's idea on comparative trade isn't too bad though. If he liked Ricardo for his LTV, theory of distribution or growth then maybe we'd have a problem.

Yeah but as a devout Catholic Tolkien was apparently pretty pissed off when Lewis joined the Church of England.

Now that you mention it, that is a possibility.
