Paul Tannery

Paul Tannery (1843–1904) was a French mathematician and historian of mathematics. He was labeled by George Sarton as "the scholar who deserves perhaps more than any other to be called the father of our studies [the history of science]".

He proposed that the early Pythagoreans believed a sort of "unit-point atomism" in his 1887 monograph Pour l'histoire de la science Hellène.
