#11 Saul Aaron Kripke - Harvard Teacher As A Teen

Saul Aaron Kripke was doing algebra in fourth grade and had mastered calculus and geometry by the time he got out of grammar school. Taking up philosophy, he wrote a paper that transformed the study of media logic and earned him a letter from Harvard. The math department offered him a job, but he declined, blaming his mother who said he should finish high school first. Today he is known as the greatest living philosopher and won the Schock Prize, the equivalent to the Noble Prize for philosophy.
