    This is an interesting compilation. The people who had contributed to a particular area of knowledge and learning are considered as father in that discipline and it is good practice to respect them like that so that people remember their names forever.
    Knowledge is power.

    Although this is very useful information the spelling of many names are wrong so it might provide misinformation few that I can point out is
    father of sociology - Auguste Comte
    father of history - Herodotus
    Modern physics ( I am doubtful whether it is verified or not).
    Being a student of history we are continuously nudged for making our sources correct and authentic and keeping facts straight and avoiding such mistakes. Even if it is for forum discussion isn't it right to write authentic information with correct spelling?

    Ibn Sina, widely regarded as the father of early modern medicine as well as the father of Clinical Pharmacology. His most famous work is the Canon of Medicine.

    'Ali ibn al-'Abbas al-Majusi, also known as Haly Abbas: founder of anatomic physiology". In addition, the section on dermatology in his Kamil as-sina'ah at-tibbiyah (Royal book-Liber Regius) has one scholar to regard him as the "father of Arabic dermatology".

    Al-Biruni: the "founder of Indology", "father of comparative religion" and geodesy, and "first anthropologist" titles for his remarkable description of early 11th-century India. Georg Morgenstierne regarded him as "the founder of comparative studies in human culture".

    Al-Khwarizmi: most renowned as the "father of algebra" Al-Khwarizmi had such huge influence on the field of mathematics that it is attributed to him the eponymous word 'algorithm' as well as 'algebra'.

    Ibn Hazm: father of comparative religion and "honoured in the West as that of the founder of the science of comparative religion". Alfred Guillaume refers to him the composer of "the first systematic higher critical study of the Old and New testaments". However, William Montgomery Watt disputes the claim, stating that Ibn Hazm's work was preceded by earlier works in Arabic and that "the aim was polemical and not descriptive".

    Averroes (Ibn Rushd) (1126-1198): known in west as The Commentator, "father of free thought and unbelief" and has been described by some as the "father of rationalism" and the "founding father of secular thought in Western Europe". Ernest Renan called Averroes the absolute rationalist, and regarded him as the father of freethought and dissent.
