Jean François d’Aubuisson de Voisins

1769 (Toulouse, France) – 1841 (Toulouse)

d’Aubuisson (or Aubuisson, as he is also referred to) was one of the first to point to the problem with his influential teacher Werner’s ideas about the origins of igneous rocks. The writer Novalis was a student at Freiberg at the same time as Aubuisson, and credited him with teaching him mathematics.
