Arthur Stanley Eddington OM fue un astrofísico británico muy conocido en la primera mitad del siglo XX. El límite de Eddington, el límite natural de la luminosidad que puede ser radiada por acreción a un objeto compacto, de él toma su nombre.

Arthur Eddington es famoso por su trabajo relacionado con la Teoría de la Relatividad. Eddington escribió un artículo en 1919, Report on the relativity theory of gravitation , que transmitió la Teoría de la Relatividad de Einstein al mundo anglosajón. Debido a la Primera Guerra Mundial, los avances científicos alemanes no eran muy conocidos en Gran Bretaña.

Demostró que la energía en el interior de las estrellas era transportada por radiación y convección. Estos trabajos quedaron plasmados en el libro The Internal Constitution of the Stars .

„The problem of experiences is not limited to the interpretation of sense-impressions.“

— Arthur Stanley Eddington
Context: The problem of experiences is not limited to the interpretation of sense-impressions.<!--IV, p.40

„To understand the phenomena of the physical world it is necessary to know the equations which the symbols obey but not the nature of that which is being symbolised.“

— Arthur Stanley Eddington
Context: If to-day you ask a physicist what he has finally made out the æther or the electron to be, the answer will not be a description in terms of billiard balls or fly-wheels or anything concrete; he will point instead to a number of symbols and a set of mathematical equations which they satisfy. What do the symbols stand for? The mysterious reply is given that physics is indifferent to that; it has no means of probing beneath the symbolism. To understand the phenomena of the physical world it is necessary to know the equations which the symbols obey but not the nature of that which is being symbolised.... this newer outlook has modified the challenge from the material to the spiritual world.<!--III, p.30

„Never mind what two tons refers to. What is it?“

— Arthur Stanley Eddington
Context: Never mind what two tons refers to. What is it? How has it entered in so definite a way into our exprerience? Two tons is the reading of the pointer when the elephant was placed on a weighing machine. Let us pass on. … And so we see that the poetry fades out of the problem, and by the time the serious application of exact science begins we are left only with pointer readings. Ch. 7 Pointer Readings <!-- p. 252 -->

„However closely we may associate thought with the physical machinery of the brain, the connection is dropped as irrelevant as soon as we consider the fundamental property of thought—that it may be correct or incorrect. ...that involves recognising a domain of the other type of law—laws which ought to be kept, but may be broken.“

„We have found a strange foot-print on the shores of the unknown.“

— Arthur Stanley Eddington
Context: We have found a strange foot-print on the shores of the unknown. We have devised profound theories, one after another, to account for its origins. At last, we have succeeded in reconstructing the creature that made the footprint. And lo! It is our own.<!--p.201
