Laurel Thatcher Ulrich
b. 7-11-1938; Sugar City, UT

Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, a historian of early American life and the history of women, and a professor at Harvard University, received the Pulitzer Prize in history for her book A Midwife’s Tale: The Life of Martha Ballard, (also available as a film).

Ulrich was also a MacArthur Fellow 1992-1997.

Laurel Thatcher Ulrich quotes ~
• “Well-behaved women seldom make history.”
• “Some history-making is intentional; much of it is accidental. People make history when they scale a mountain, ignite a bomb, or refuse to move to the back of the bus. But they also make history by keeping diaries, writing letters, or embroidering initials on linen sheets. History is a conversation and sometimes a shouting match between present and past, though often the voices we most want to hear are barely audible. People make history by passing on gossip, saving old records, and by naming rivers, mountains, and children. Some people leave only their bones, though bones too make a history when someone notices.”
• “A pioneer is not someone who makes her own soap. She is one who takes up her burdens and walks toward the future.”

Andreas Vesalius

d. 10-15-1564; Zakynthos

Vesalius used dissection as the primary anatomy teaching tool while his students clustered around the table. His insistence on hands-on direct observation was a huge leap of progress in medical studies and he kept meticulous drawings of his work.

Giambattista Vico
b. 6-23-1668; Naples, Italy
d. 1-23-1744

Political philosopher, rhetorician, historian, jurist, and professor, Giambattista Vico, was “a critic of modern rationalism and apologist of classical antiquity”. His magnum opus is Principi di Scienza Nuova d'intorno alla Comune Natura delle Nazioni, often published in English as New Science.

Giambattista Vico quotes ~
• “Uniform ideas originating among entire peoples unknown to each other must have a common ground of truth.”
• “Men first feel necessity, then look for utility, next attend to comfort, still later amuse themselves with pleasure, thence grow dissolute in luxury, and finally go mad and waste their substance.”
• “Common sense is judgment without reflection, shared by an entire class, an entire nation, or the entire human race.”

d. 6-11-1934; Zakynthos

Lev Vygotsky was a pioneering developmental psychologist interested in child development and education. His key premise is referred to as cultural mediation where the specific knowledge gained by children through interactions also represented the shared knowledge of a culture. The process is known as internalization.
