Titera’s Tidbit: Scientist
In 1833, British geologist William Whewell coined “scientist”, a derivation from the Latin scientia, meaning general knowledge, to indicate a kind of nonspecialist practitioner in science. The term took some years to catch on. In 1840, Whewall wrote, “We need very much a name to describe a cultivator of science in general. I should incline to call him a ‘Scientist’.” It was not until the 1870s that it became popular.
