The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.

Clifford Ambrose Truesdell III

Clifford Ambrose Truesdell III, (February 18, 1919 - January 14, 2000) was an American mathematician, natural philosopher, historian of mathematics, and polemicist.

Truesdell was born in America, Los Angeles. From 1961 until his retirement in 1989 he was professor of rational mechanics at John Hopkins University in Baltimore . He was the advisor of Walter Noll who contributed decisevely to foundational rational mechanics. The aim of rational mechanics is to construct a full mathematic model for treating (continuous) mechanical phenomena . Truesdell founded (in 1957), and was editor-in-chief of, the journals Archive for Rational Mechanics and Analysis and Archive for the History of Exact Sciences, which were unusual in several ways. Following Truesdell's criticisms of awkward style in scientific writing (to be found on "A Comment on Scientific Writing" see ref. 1), the journal accepted papers in English, French, German, or Latin.
