WHEWELL, William was born in 1794 in Lancaster, Lancashire, England.

Mathematician, philosopher of science and university administrator, who published early papers on economics using mathematical language. There is some dispute as to whether this was genuine mathematical economics or merely economics set out algebraically. In pursuit of the encouragement of the inductive method in economics, he cajoled his friend Richard Jones into completing and publishing at least a part of his projected major work on economics.

Fellow, Tutor, Master, Trinity College, Cambridge, 1817-1866. Professor Mineralogy, Professor Moral Philosophy, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, United Kingdom, 1828-1832, 1838-1855.
