Imhotep Egyptian chancellor, architect, and high priest who is one of the few non-Pharoah's to be deified. Believed to be the architect of the Pyramid of Djoser, which is considered the first ever large-scale stone construction made by humans.
Immanuel Kant Arguably the most influential philosopher since Aristotle; Categorical Imperative has huge impact on moral philosophy; Thing in Itself has a huge impact on the concept of reality, reason, and interpretation; Critique of Pure Reason on rationalism, reason, etc.,; had impact on politics for his belief that greater Democracy mixed with international diplomacy will lead us to perpetual peace.
Isaac Newton laid the foundation for classical mechanics, developed the field of optics and was one of the two independent inventors of calculus. He formulated the laws of motion and universal gravitation. He also built the first practical refracting telescope. Arguably the most important man of science to have ever existed.

Jabir ibn Hayyan Called by some "The Father of Chemistry" for creating the oldest known systematic classification of chemical substances and instructions on how to work with most of them.

Jacob Perkins "Father of Refrigeration" for inventing the first practical refrigerator.
