Philosopher
X
Physicist
Engineer
Biologist
Political Scientist Policy maker
My favorite example of X is Mozi, the Chinese philosopher who pioneered the scientific method and consequentialist ethics. Instead of preaching these ideas in an ivory tower, he built a movement that applied scientific thinking to medicine, advised rulers of the Warring state period and literally helped build better reinforcements for city walls to prevent war.
