2. Has made at least one Seminal Contribution (i.e., the work caused a substantial intellectual leap forward in the discipline rather than an incremental extension of existing knowledge); and

3. Has had a Major Impact (i.e., his/her work is central in any narrative of the field, and he/she is widely recognized to have redirected scholarship in the field).
