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 .

„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.“

—  Arthur Stanley Eddington
Context: 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.<!--V, p.57-58

„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

„Our story of evolution ended with a stirring in the brain-organ of the latest of Nature's experiments“

—  Arthur Stanley Eddington
Context: Our story of evolution ended with a stirring in the brain-organ of the latest of Nature's experiments; but that stirring of consciousness transmutes the whole story and gives meaning to its symbolism. Symbolically it is the end, but looking behind the symbolism it is the beginning.<!--III, p.38

„If our so-called facts are changing shadows, they are shadows cast by the light of constant truth.“

—  Arthur Stanley Eddington
Context: If our so-called facts are changing shadows, they are shadows cast by the light of constant truth. So too in religion we are repelled by that confident theological doctrine... but we need not turn aside from the measure of light that comes into our experience showing us a Way through the unseen world.<!--IX, p.91

„Wherever a way opens we are impelled to seek by the only methods that can be devised for that particular opening,“

—  Arthur Stanley Eddington
Context: Physical science comes nearest to that complete system of exact knowledge which all sciences have before them as an ideal. Some fall far short of it. The physicist who inveighs against the lack of coherence and the indefiniteness of theological theories, will probably speak not much less harshly of the theories of biology and psychology. They also fail to come up to his standard of methodology. On the other side of him stands an even superior being—the pure mathematician—who has no high opinion of the methods of deduction used in physics, and does not hide his disapproval of the laxity of what is accepted as proof in physical science. And yet somehow knowledge grows in all these branches. Wherever a way opens we are impelled to seek by the only methods that can be devised for that particular opening, not over-rating the security of our finding, but conscious that in this activity of mind we are obeying the light that is in our nature.<!--VII, p.77-78
