I need help creating a thesis and an outline on John Dalton: Revival of Atomism. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. After helping his elder brother in running a school for a couple of years he wanted to pursue his studies in either law or medicine. However, this idea of his was not encouraged by his relatives. In 1793, he moved to Manchester. He was mentored by a blind philosopher John Gough in Mathematics, Philosophy, and Science. Subsequently, he joined New College in Manchester as a teacher of Mathematics and Philosophy. He was with this college until 1800 and subsequently, he left this job and started private tuitions in the same subjects namely Mathematics and Natural Philosophy.
He was a member of “Manchester Literary and Philosophical Society” the Lit and Phil since 1794 and by 1800 he became secretary of this Society. He published and presented many papers through this Society and all these papers were of great scientific importance. His very first paper was related to color blindness, of which he himself was a victim and due to his pioneering contributions towards understanding color blindness this disease is named after him “Daltonism”. His great contributions to the field of natural science and philosophy are – Atomic Theory, Law of Multiple Proportions, Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressures, and Daltonism – to name a few. On the account of his contribution – mainly the Atomic Theory, he can be termed one of the father figures of modern science. He died on July 23, 1844.
John Dalton made great contributions to modern-day science and natural philosophy. He was a great blend of an experimental scientist and a philosopher. His experiments were mainly in the field of chemical reactions involving gases and the properties of the gases and the synthesized his great theories from his experiments. He was said to be a crude experimentalist and not a sophisticated experimentalist but the fact that he could synthesize such great theories from his crude experiments speaks a lot about his intellect. In subsequent sections, we will briefly discuss some of his important contributions.
Whether the matter is a continuum or composed of discrete indivisible particles was a topic of philosophical importance for a very long time.
