    discovering and analysing aspects of the world around us then we can see how each of them undertakes this in a way compliant with what they believe to be true.  If we look at the works of Carolus Linnaeus, Demitri I, Mendeleev and Leonhard Euler. Carolus Linnaeus is also known as Carl Linnaeus looked at the world of nature. His  achievement was a method of ordering living organisms and then classify them all within larger categories (Lindroth, 1983). Prior to this each organism was know by its name only, and  as a result there were many names for organisms that were similar or the same. There had been a system put in place by John Ray, but the system of  classification devised by Linnaeus was much easier to use. However, even with this logical categorisation of the species it was still the ardent believe of Linnaeus that there was not  such a process of evolution and that all of the organisms that he was classifying had been created n their current fashion by God (Lindroth, 1983). The manner of the  classification is interesting as well as revolutionary for the time. He bases his ideas on looking at the reproductive organs of the different organisms categorising by way of number and  arrangement of these features (Koerner, 1999). For example when categorising a plant it was by reference to the stamens and the pistils ( the male and female reproductive organs), the  results were also seen as controversial at the time (Koerner, 1999). One example of this was the Class Monoecia within which there were plants that had both male and female  plants on the same plant, firs and even cypresses (Koerner, 1999). The plants that did not have any visible sexual organs were classified as Class Cryptogamia, which also meant "plants
