A statue of James Clerk Maxwell, the most famous Scottish physicist and one of the greatest physicists in history. It is good to see an acknowledgment to one of the greatest minds in history. Whole new epoch has started because of Maxwell. Definitely worth visiting. The statue is in the middle of the road.Therefore, be careful when taking pictures.

The statue of James Clerk Maxwell is on George Street right next to St Andrews Square.
One thing that struck me is that the statue is facing down the street away from the square. I thought it should have been facing into the square but hey, that's just me.

James Clerk Maxwell was a famous Scottish physicist so it's fitting that there is a tribute to him in Edinburgh.

Although slightly off the beaten track it's definitely worth hunting down.

The statue to James Clerk Maxwell is well deserved and it was far too late in being built, 175 years after his birth and 117 years after he died! He did some really revolutionary work on electricity and magnetism, so he was quite an important scientist. It is curious that some important people just do not seem to "count" like some others when it comes to having monuments built to honour them! It's worth alook.

Another one of the numerous statues in Edinburgh, I never saw so many statues anywhere. This one gets lost amongst the rest.

James Clerk Maxwell fue un científico escocés del siglo XIX que se dedicó a la física y a la matemática. Como muchos otros personajes escoceses destacados tiene su estatua en Edimburgo, en la George Street.

James Clerk Maxwell was one of the brightest scientists in the history of humanity. He was Albert Einstein's hero! But oddly, and quite sadly I think, you'll not find 1 in 100 in this country that have even heard of him, much less have the faintest clue about what he did. I think it says something... It can't be counted as a positive that millions of schoolchildren in this country have completed their studies without having heard of him, but it explains some things. In a city that prides itself on its history, it's beyond peculiar that this statue was only recently emplaced, and is a relatively minor statue in a city which has many.

Having shared that opinion, I'll say that the statue is quite a good one. And if you'll look down on the ground beneath the statue, you'll see the discovery for which Maxwell is most well-known: Maxwell's Equations. Maxwell's Equations are a set of "partial differential equations" that provided the foundation upon which our understanding of electromagnetism is built - these relationships have illuminated the path for others to discover radar (which helped England survive Nazi Germany's bombardments), and even the cellphone service peddled by a host of merchants that so many of us depend on for communications. Truly, it would be a different world today had James Clerk Maxwell not done what he did. And once you understand the magnitude of his contribution, you will wonder why the statue is not 300 feet tall.

Another cool statue in the streets of Edinburgh. James Clerk Maxwell. Not a bad sculpting job, I like it.

Esta estátua localizada na final da George Street é uma homenagem ao físico e matemático escocês James Clerk Maxwell. A estátua está localizada perto do local de nascimento de Maxwell na India Street, bem como da Royal Society of Edinburgh.

James Clerk Maxwell se tornou o maior físico da era vitoriana, chegando inclusive a inspirar Einstein. Sua realização mais proeminente foi formular as equações da teoria eletromagnética clássica. Essas quatro equações são conhecidas como equações de Maxwell. Eles são mostrados em uma pequena placa na parte traseira do pedestal da estátua.
