Hans Christian Ørsted, born this day in 1777, was a Danish physicist and chemist who was one of the first to publish on the relationship between electric currents and magnetic fields, an important aspect of electromagnetism. He was also a philosopher and poet whose ideas, including his scientific theories, were strongly influenced by Kant.
