The Correspondence of Michael Faraday  Volume 5

Michael Faraday (1791-1867) was one of the most important men of science in nineteenth century Britain. His discoveries of electro-magnetic rotations (1821) and electro-magnetic induction (1831) laid the foundations of the modern electrical industry. His discovery of the magneto-optical effect and diamagnetism (1845) led him to formulate the field theory of electro-magnetism, which forms one of the cornerstones of modern physics.These and a whole host of other fundamental discoveries in physics and chemistry, together with his lecturing at the Royal Institution, his work for the state (including Trinity House), his religious beliefs and his lack of mathematical ability, make Faraday one of the most fascinating scientific figures ever.

Michael Faraday

Excerpt from Michael Faraday: His Life and Work On A Portrait of Faraday. Was ever man so simple and so sage, So crowned and yet so careless of a prize! Great Faraday, who made the world so wise, And loved the labour better than the wage. And this you say is how he looked in age, With that strong brow and these great humble eyes That seem to look with reverent surprise On all outside himself. Turn o'er the page, Recording Angel, it is white as snow. Ah God, a fitting messenger was he To show Thy mysteries to us below. Child as he came has he returned to Thee. Would he could come but once again to show The wonder-deep of his simplicity. Cosmo Monkhouse. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

The Life and Discoveries of Michael Faraday  Classic Reprint

Excerpt from The Life and Discoveries of Michael Faraday The second quarter of the nineteenth century was a period of unprecedented activity in the world of science. The foundations of mechanics had indeed been laid by Newton and much of the building was complete; the edifice of geometrical optics had been reared, though the companion structure of physical Optics was scarce begun. Of the palace of electricity, however, even the site had hardly been surveyed, and the foundation stones were still to be laid. As we contemplate its present grandeur, and consider the comparatively brief space of time in which so much has been accomplished, we pause to pay our tribute to the master builders who have been employed upon it, and exclaim there were giants in those days Many stones have been well and truly laid, and will preserve the names upon them to still distant ages. But there is one name which we read more frequently than all the rest, and upon some of the greatest stones of all -the name of michael faraday.

Michael Faraday  Man of Science

Among those of our great men who, born in humble circumstances and unfurnished with the benefits of early education, have yet secured for themselves honourable positions in the history of the world's progress, Michael Faraday holds a remarkable place. Born the son of a journeyman blacksmith, Michael yet gained for himself a conspicuous position among the very first scientists of his day, and at the time of his death was acknowledged as one of the leading philosophersÑelectriciansÑchemistsÑof this nineteenth century. Our interest in a great man makes us always interestedÊalso in his familyÑwe become anxious to know who and what he was apart from that which has made him great. Who were his parents? from where did they come? what were they like? what did they do? and a number of similar questions are at once started as soon as we commence considering the lives of our "great and good." In the case of Faraday we have only scanty information as to his family, but thus much we have gleaned:Ñ During the whole of last century there was living in or near the village of Clapham, in Yorkshire, a family of the name of Faraday. Between the years 1708 and 1730 the Clapham parish register shows us that "Richard Faraday, stonemason, tiler, and separatist," recorded the births of ten children, and it is probable that he had in his large family yet another son, Robert. Whether, however, Robert was his son or only his nephew is a matter of doubt, but it is known of him that he married Elizabeth Dean, the possessor of a small though comfortable house called Clapham Wood Hall, and that he was the father of ten children, one of whom, James, was born in 1761, and became the father of Michael Faraday.

Michael Faraday and The Royal Institution

A self-educated man who knew no mathematics, Michael Faraday rose from errand boy to become one of Britain's greatest scientists. Faraday made the discoveries upon which most of twentieth-century technology is based and readers of this book will enjoy finding out in how many ways we are indebted to him. The story of his life speaks to us across the years and is a fascinating read, especially when the tale is told with the understanding and gusto that Professor Thomas-one of the UK's leading scientists-brings to the telling. Faraday took great trouble to make the latest discoveries of science, his own and others', intelligible to the layman, and the tradition he fostered has been kept alive ever since, so that the Royal Institution is as well known for its contributions to education as for its research. Written in a concise, nontechnical style, Michael Faraday and the Royal Institution: The Genius of Man and Place is a human account that provides an introduction to the roots of modern science and ways in which scientists work. The book is lavishly illustrated with drawings, cartoons, photographs, and letters-many never before published. There is no similar book on Faraday that interprets his genius in modern, everyday terms, making it understandable, interesting, and exciting reading for scientists and nonscientists alike.

Michael Faraday s Mental Exercises

In 1818 Michael Faraday and a handful of London artisans formed a self-help group with the aim of teaching themselves how to write like gentleman. For a year and a half, this essay circle met regularly to read and critique one another’s writings and the “Mental Exercises” they produced are a record of life, literary tastes, and the social and political ideas of dissenting artisans in Regency London. This volume is the first to publish the essays and poems produced by Faraday’s circle and it includes not only the complete corpus of the group’s writings, but detailed annotations, extracts from key sources, a full-length biographical, historical, and a literary introduction as well. Valuable not only for Romantic and early-Victorian historians, but for literary scholars and the general reader as well, this collection sheds considerable light on the developing mind of one our greatest scientists. “Mental Exercises is an important document for historians interested in the lives and education of artisans of the period.”—Geoffrey Cantor, University of Leeds
