Keynes achieved fame as an economist. He made many important contributions to the development of economics as a science and also to the practical application of economic theory. Nevertheless, Keynes also trained as a mathematician. He wrote a groundbreaking work on probability theory while a relatively young man and made extensive use of mathematics in his work in economics throughout his career.
