Professor John Tyndall (1820-1893) was an Irish natural philosopher whose strong, picturesque mode of seizing and expressing things gave him an immense living influence both in speech and writing, and disseminated a popular knowledge of physical science such as had not previously existed. Tyndall was to a large extent a self-made man, but with indomitable earnestness devoted himself to study, to which he was stimulated by the writings of Carlyle. With much spirit and in face of many difficulties, he attended the University of Marburg (1848-1851), where he obtained his doctorate in two years. It was on the whole the personality, however, rather than the discoverer, that was greatest in Tyndall. In the pursuit of science for its own sake, undisturbed by sordid considerations, he shone as a beacon light to younger men. His investigations of the transparency and opacity of gases and vapours for radiant heat, which occupied him during many years are frequently considered his chief scientific work. His works include On Radiation (1865), Heat as a Mode of Motion (1863), Faraday as a Discoverer (1868) and Six Lectures on Light (1873).

It has been thought desirable to give you and the world some image of MICHAEL FARADAY, as a scientific investigator and discoverer. The attempt to respond to this desire has been to me a labour of difficulty, if also a labour of love.

Publisher: Cambridge University Press. Faraday as a Discoverer. Online ISBN: 9781107262232. First published in 1868, soon after the death of Michael Faraday (1791–1867), this short work assesses the discoveries made by a humble bookbinder who became one of the foremost scientific investigators of the nineteenth century. Eminently qualified, John Tyndall (1820–93), who received Faraday's support in taking up the professorship of natural philosophy at the Royal Institution in 1853, gives an informed appraisal of a remarkable scientific career.

Faraday As A Discoverer is a fascinating glimpse into the contributions Faraday made in the fields of chemistry and electronics through his dedication as an observer and experimenter. Published about the same time Thomas Edison filed for his first patent, this book asks the question of "what good is electricity?" and offers an interesting insight into contemporary views on the subject. He was the son of a local police constable, and attended local schools in County Carlow until his late teens. Thereafter Tyndall was hired as a draftsman by the Irish government’s land surveying and mapping agency.

Talk about Faraday as a Discoverer (Dodo Press)

An interesting glimpse of the life of one of history's greatest experimental physicists provided by a younger colleague. Faraday's discoveries provided the basis for much of the practical electric motor applications we have. It also provided key inputs to the theoretical work of James Clerk Maxwell whose equations assisted Einstein theoretical work and which he described as the work of preceding​ genius whose shoulders he was standing upon.
Excellent Foundation Literature on this subject. Well written and stands as seminal treatise.
It's OK, interesting. Not much science content, rather wordy. I have a science degree and was hoping for more science content. But it's a good read.
The author, an admirer, tells all about his experiments and papers but little about the man.
Pasteur and Faraday are two of the greatest scientists ever to have entered the Kingdom of Discovery. Yet their backgrounds could not be more dissimilar. The former completed his studies as a brilliant student. The latter interrupted his at the age of 13 to become a bookbinder apprentice, then an artisan before joining the illustrious Humphry Davy as his laboratory assistant at the Royal Institution in London.
What did these men of genius have in common?
First, a vivid imagination. " The universe and all life in it is asymmetrical" (Pasteur), " I could believe in the Arabian Nights as easily as in the Encyclopedia" (Faraday)
They were incomparable experimentalists and would not cease their endeavours until they had verified and broadcast their findings and their intense scruitiny ensured that no unusal happening was ever missed. Each used simple equipment and often made his own items and by constantly changing their field of interest (Faraday physics and chemistry) they remained productive throughout life.
Who better than John Tyndall, a contemporary and successor to Faraday, to describe the manner in which the latter made his discoveries. This book, first published in the nineteenth century deserves to be on the shelf of every young scientist who desires a hero and mentor. Michael Faraday as portrayed by Tyndall serves that role
Worth the read
