← Faraday and Templeton brainwash British kids

The Geoffrey Cantor biography of Faraday is fascinating, and raises the possibility that Faraday's aversion to describing the world in mathematical terms (in stark contrast to the slightly later physics of James Clark Maxwell, say) may have been psychologically linked to his religious views. So that in a sense he was the kind of scientist he was because of his religion.
