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

John Wilkins
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.

    11. The Analytical Language Of John Wilkins
    THE ANALYTICAL LANGUAGE OF john wilkins. By Jorge Luis Borges. Translated from the Spanish 'El idioma analítico de john wilkins' by Lilia Graciela Vázquez; edited by Jan Frederik Solem with assistance from Bjørn Are Davidsen and Rolf Andersen. Encyclopedia Britannica does not include the article on john wilkins. This omission can be considered justified if




    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'.

    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

    16. Bishop John Wilkins
    Concise information on this first president of the Royal Society.
    Bishop John Wilkins
    John Wilkins chaired the founding meeting of the Royal Society and was its first secretary. He was the only person to have been head of a college in both Cambridge and Oxford. He was Master of Trinity College, Cambridge but was deposed at the Restoration in 1660: he had married Oliver Cromwell's sister, and this did not endear him to returning royalty. He had previously been Warden of Wadham College, Oxford He is of interest to cryptographers because he wrote a book called `Mercury, or the Secret and Swift Messenger', which is described in David Kahn's history `The Codebreakers' as `the first book in English on cryptography'. It is much more than that: it is a treatise on the state of the art in seventeenth century telegraphy. Wilkins describes a number of optical and acoustic techniques. He explains how the letters of the alphabet can be represented as five bits each and then transmitted using any available means - such as two different bells, or a musket shot for `0' and a cannon shot for `1'. He goes on to what may be the first systematic treatment of coding in different number bases (binary and ternary). This technology evolved into the chains of semaphore stations used by both Britain and France in the Napoleonic wars, and they in turn stimulated the development of the electric telegraph in the mid-nineteenth century. He also speculates on whether a universal language could be constructed; this inspired Roget's thesaurus, and (much later) Esperanto. In passing, Wilkins explains how to protect telegraph messages against being understood by hostile observers. As well as showing how to break simple substitution ciphers, and introducing various geometrical enciphering schemes, he proposes the use of nulls to make cryptanalysis harder. He not only launches the subject of cryptology into the English literature, but introduces the words `cryptographia' and `cryptologia' to the English language. The book ends with two pages on cryptography policy that are still pertinent today. His conclusion is that `If all those useful Inventions that are liable to abuse, should therefore be concealed, there is not any Art or Science which might be lawfully profest'.

    Wilkins, John (1614-1672)
    Brother-in-law of Oliver Cromwell and Oxford graduate who became Master of Trinity College, Cambridge, and eventually Bishop of Chester. Wilkins was among the new wave of thinkers who voiced freely their opinions on the implications of the Copernican Revolution . As a young author he was one of several men, including Johannes Kepler , who, following Galileo 's telescopic observations, were inspired to speculate about the possibility of lunar life and of traveling to the Moon (see Moon, voyages to ). He expounded upon the former in the first edition of his book The Discovery of a World in the Moone, or, A Discourse Tending to Prove That 'Tis Probable There May Be Another Habitable World in That Planet published anonymously in 1638. Two years later, having read Francis Godwin 's contemporaneous fantasy about a lunar journey, he was encouraged to set down his own thoughts on such a possibility in the third edition of The Discovery pluralism .
