John Wilkins 's father was Walter Wilkins, a goldsmith from Oxford. In [6] Aubrey describes Walter Wilkins as:- ... a very ingenious man with a very mechanical head. He was much for trying of experiments, and his head ran much upon the perpetual motion. Walter Wilkins married Jane Dod, the daughter of the Puritan minister John Dod, and John was one of their four children. Walter Wilkins died in 1625 while John was still a boy and Jane remarried. John's stepfather then became Francis Pope and a son of this marriage, Walter Pope, remained a close friend of John Wilkins throughout his life. John's early education is described in [4] in the following way:- He was taught his Latin and Greek by Edward Sylvester, a noted Grecian, who kept a Private School in the Parish of All Saints in Oxford: His Proficiency was such, that at Thirteen Years of Age he entered a Student in New-Inn, in Easter-Term . He made no long stay there, but was removed to Magdalen Hall, ... and there he took his Degree in Arts in October

Connections had assisted Wilkins in his ascent. Thanks to a grandfather revered by the Puritans Wilkins was early introduced into the circles of the powerful critics of Charles 1, and under their patronage began his clerical career. Later, in the 1650s, an opportune marriage to Oliver Cromwell's youngest sister, perhaps the most eligible widow in the land, but described by contemporaries as 'nasty', speeded Wilkin's own preferment, and protected both his college and the university from the malevolent government in Whitehall. The adroitness of Wilkins in prospering in uncertain and dangerous times may have a modern ring to it, and may explain why he was charged with ambition and a lack of principles. But were this all to Wilkins, that he became head of two colleges and ended his life as a Bishop, we would hardly pause to celebrate him. But underlying his ability to survive was a principle which entitles him to greater respect, namely that of latitudinarianism, a wish in an age of heated and divisive controversies to comprehend and tolerate a variety of opinions, whether religious, intellectual or political. As a Bishop within an established church with increasingly high and exclusive pretensions, Wilkins exercised a valuable moderating influence. Yet his theology and churchmanship, important as they were in the 1650s and 1660s, are dwarfed by his role as a champion and popularizer of the 'new' experimental science. In a series of books Wilkins expounded the discoveries and theories of Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler, pleaded for further experiment and observation, defended the universities against ignorant and jealous adversaries, extolled the virtues of cooperative scholarly and scientific enquiries, and, following Francis Bacon, explained how new techniques might improve life.

(Un ensayo de Jorge Luis Borges, publicado primera vez en la colección Otras Inquisiciones
He comprobado que la décimocuarta edición de la Encyclopaedia Britannica suprime el articulo sobre John Wilkins. Esa omisión es justa, si recordamos la trivialidad del artículo (veinte renglones de meras circunstancias biográficas: Wilkins nació en 1614, Wilkins murió en 1672, Wilkins fue capellán de Carlos Luis, príncipe palatino; Wilkins fue nombrado rector de uno de los colegios de Oxford, Wilkins fue el primer secretario de la Real Sociedad de Londres, etc.); es culpable, si consideramos la obra especulativa de Wilkins. Éste abundó en felices curiosidades: le interesaron la teología, la criptografía, la música, la fabricación de colmenas transparentes, el curso de un planeta invisible, la posibilidad de un viaje a la luna, la posibilidad y los principios de un lenguaje mundial. A este último problema dedicó el libro An Essay Towards a Real Character and a Philosophical Language (600 páginas en cuarto mayor, 1668). No hay ejemplares de ese libro en nuestra Biblioteca Nacional; he interrogado, para redactar esta nota

and its first secretary. He died in London on the of November 1672. The chief of his numerous works is an Essay towards a Real Character and a Philosophical Language (London, 1668), in which he expounds a new universal language for the use of philosophers. He is remembered also for a curious work entitled The Discovery of a World in the Moon (1638, 3rd ed., with an appendix "Thepossibility of a passage thither,"1640). Other works are A Discourse concerning a New Planet (1640); Mercury, or the Secret and Swift Messenger (1641), a work of some ingenuity on the means of rapid correspondence; and Mathematical Magick (1648).

By Jorge Luis Borges ; he did also suggest the creation of a language similar to this former system, a general language, organizing and covering all human ideas. John Wilkins, around 1664, started to work on this task. He divided the universe in forty categories or classes, these being further subdivided into differences, which was then subdivided into species. He assigned to each class a monosyllable of two letters; to each difference, a consonant; to each species, a vowel. For example: de , which means an element; deb , the first of the elements, fire; deba , a part of the element fire, a flame. In a similar language invented by Letellier (1850) a means animal; ab, mammal; abo, carnivore; aboj, feline; aboje, cat; abi, herbivore; abiv, horse; etc. In the language of Bonifacio Sotos Ochando (1845) imaba means building; imaca, harem; imafe, hospital; imafo, pesthouse; imari, house; imaru, country house; imedo, coloumn; imede, pillar; imego

    John Wilkins (1614 - 1672)
    John Wilkins' contribution to the development of science was more philosophic than theoretical. He wrote A Discourse concerning a New Planet (1640), which argued for a new approach to scientific experiment. His was a strong voice, among others, in the intellectual revolution of the 17th century. His writing had much in common with that of Galileo, although he was not directly influenced by him. Wilkins was brought up in Oxford, and was a son of Walter Wilkins - whose wife Jane was daughter of the Puritan minister John Dod. John received an enviable education - he was tutored in the classics by Edward Sylvester, an esteemed Greek scholar, and it was said that by the age of 13 Wilkins was ready to enter as a student at New-Inn before being moved to Magdalen Hall, Cambridge. Having completed a BA, he took orders and entered the Church. His writing, however, argued against using Holy Scriptures as evidence for physical reality, and warned that humankind should not be '... so superstitiously devoted to Antiquity as for to take up everything as canonical which drops from the pen of a Father...'. The scriptures, he said, should be referred to as '...a Rule of our Faith and Obedience', and he did not consider it wise ' stretch it to be a Judge of such natural truths as are to be found out by our own industry and experience'.

    20. Darwinism And The Division Of Labour
    The founding conference of the British Society for the Social Responsibility in Science in November 1970, was on the theme, 'The Social Impact of Modern Biology'. The conference was attended by a number of eminent scientists, e.g., Nobel Laureates James Watson, Jaques Monod, Maurice wilkins; David Bohm, Jacob Bronowski, R.G. Edwards (of Steptoe Edwards, the pioneers of 'testtube babies'), as well as some radicals, Hilary Steven Rose, john Beckwith. It was, perhaps, the last moment when radicals and posh scientists were relatively united. The talk was published in The Listener, 17 August 1972, pp. 202-5 and in Science as Culture no. 9 110-24, 1990.
