36169 Grosseteste           Discovered 1999 Sept. 11 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Object Search at the Anderson Mesa Station.
Robert Grosseteste (1175-1253) was an English statesman, natural philosopher and theologian. His commentaries on Aristotle underlaid what was to become the scientific method: generalizing from observations to universal laws, and then using those laws to predict outcomes.
