A scientist is a person engaging in a systematic activity to acquire knowledge that describes and predicts the natural world. In a more restricted sense, a scientist may refer to an individual who uses the scientific method. The person may be an expert in one or more areas of science. The term scientist was coined by the theologian, philosopher and man of science William Whewell. Scientists perform research toward a more comprehensive understanding of nature, including physical, mathematical and social realms.
