If I really had this opportunity, I would have liked to invite the following 4 great people to dinner mainly because they’ve served the human history a great deal…
Alexander Fleming, the Scottish physician, father of ‘penicillin’. Because of him, antibiotic use against bacteria was launched. Alexander Graham Bell, the Scottish-American inventor who invented the phone in 1876. The Bell family was a family of good speeches over the years. Graham Bell was a member of this family and concentrated on the work of voice transmission and communication resulting in a great invention.
Avicenna, who lived in the borders of Uzbekistan of today. He was a scientist as you know who discovered the existence of microbes in the field of medicine. He left humankind more than 150 books 17 of which are related to medicine. He’s an amazing figure who took service as the Minister of State Services, worked as a physician and a philosopher, and studied science subjects at nights to reveal works. He wrote books on philosophical issues, signs and warnings and his famous work; The Book of Healing. His work, Canon of Medicine is a 1 million-word medical encyclopedia. These books have been taught all over the world as a textbook.
And finally Mimar Sinan (Architect Sinan), one of the greatest architects of all times and especially the Ottoman Empire. During 99 years between 1489 and 1588, thousands of works were brought to life. He’s an amazing mind who honoured the world with 92 mosques, 52 masjids, 55 madrasas, 7 houses for the readers of the Koran, 20 tombs, 17 hostels for pilgrims in Turkey, 3 healing places (today’s hospitals), 6 waterways, 10 bridges, 20 caravanserais, 30 palaces, 8 cellars and 48 hamams.
