6. Blaise Pascal (IQ: 195)
Blaise Pascal was a French writer, philosopher, physicist and mathematician. His contributions include basic concepts of mechanical calculator and probability theories, as well as studies of pressure and fluids. After undergoing a profound religious experience in his early 30’s, Pascal engaged in theology and philosophy while slowly abandoning physics and mathematics. His name is known by high school students today from the Pascal’s law of pressure and he propagated ideas of experiencing God through heart instead of reason. His intuitionism principle has a significant impact on later philosophers including Henri Bergson and Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
