Johann Bernoulli came from a great mathematical family. He was encouraged to go to take up business in school by his father, who envisioned his son taking over the family spice trade, but instead Johann chose to go into medicine. During his time at school, his interest in medicine waned, and he began to learn from his older brother, Jacob. Twelve years his senior, Jacob was involved in the study of a newer field called calculus and he shared his findings with Johann. The brothers wrote letters of their discoveries to each other, coining the term ‘integral’ as it relates to math. However, jealousy began to tear the two of them apart as Johann left his brother out of certain communications with Leibniz, a famous mathematician of the day. Johann was betrayed when one of the first publications of the material he and his brother had been working on was released by his pupil, Guillaume de l’Hopital. Stung but resilient, he began to teach mathematics as the ‘University of Basel’, taking over his deceased brother’s position. In the years that followed, he released many mathematical papers and supported Leibniz in his debate against Newton and his theory of gravity. He let jealousy sabotage a family relationship once more as he plagiarized his son’s mathematical paper. Johann Bernoulli was honored with many academy memberships during his lifetime.
