    Default Famous Introverts

    I've noticed a lot of threads about introversion lately that are negative. So I think it will be good for our introverted brethren and sistren to list famous introverts from history or popular culture. Be prepared to back up your claims!

    Note: The following is mostly guesswork on my part from exposure to the works of said person or writings about them. Feel free to criticize and the list will be altered.

    Dante Aligheri

    Wrote the Divine Comedy about a man's trip through hell, purgatory, and finally to paradise.


    Roman poet. Influenced Milton, Keats, Shakespeare, and Thoreau.


    Poet, diplomat, philosopher.

    Charles Babbage

    Mathematician, inventor, philosopher. One of the "fathers of the computer."

    Neils Bohr


    John Calvin

    French Theologian

    Lewis Carrol

    Author, mathematician, Anglican cleric. Writer of Alice in Wonderland.

    This is the point where I haven't had breakfast and go off to go get some. Perhaps I'll continue this later.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.
    - A.A. Milne.
