The most inspirational Nobel Laureates

by C:F Team on 21st October, 2010 at 3:55 PM CEST

On the 11th of October 2010 the 543 Nobel Prize was awarded. Every year, since 1901, the Nobel Prize is awarded to most prominent persons and pioneers from the different work areas. Although the focus is mainly held on the winners of the Peace Prize, we have to acknowledge the indisputable progress in technology and science that is the key stone for the development.

Many disputes and controversial arguments arises each year that the Nobel Prize is in the hands of the western world and that the selection is not transperent and fair. Nevertheless, this is one of the indicators that shows how great moral and public value the prize holds. It can show us that the impossible can be done, like Grameen bank, or that climate change is a force to be reckon with or it can also show us that hope in the better future is more valuable that just political voice.

My dear C:F fans, share with us which Nobel Laureate's work inspires you the most?

I must not get out much because I haven't heard of any of those people (thanks for the links Jatin!). So, I will say Obama, because I actually know who he is :) As I recall there was a lot of controversy with his award...

Anyway, my impression of Obama is that he tries hard but is often impeded by forces of the status quo, so he doesn't actually end up doing that much. Must be frustrating trying to lead massive change. The fact that he keeps at it is what inspires me.

I am inspired by the work of James D. Watson. He received the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1962 for helping discover the DNA. And I like one of his quotes: "the human brain is the most complex thing we have yet discovered in our Univers."

Also a bit rusted here, must admit I only follow the literature laureates. And yes, Obama :) Just returned from Iceland where I got the book from their Nobel prize winner, writer and poet Halldór Kiljan Laxness. Melancholic & rich, inspiring through and through. And yes, great post Tanja! And thanks for the links Jatin.
