Social Newtons | Existive

Modern polymath (image)
A depiction of what it takes to become a modern "existive" social Newton, namely: someone who becomes "Another Newton" (Henry Adams, 1910) able to solve the great problem of "physicochemical social dynamics" via Gibbs; a "New Aristotle" (Raymond Fosdick, 1924); or someone equivalent to a "few super Einsteins" (William Wheeler, 1939) who embodies the a polymathy degree problem mindset, via a Social Principia
In hmolscience rankings, social Newtons | existive refers to tentative "social Newtons" (or "another Newton") that are still in reactive existence, i.e. existive (alive, in colloquial speak); to clarify, as compared to historical, pre 21st century classical social Newtons, the modern thinker, per the polymathy degree problem, needs to have an intellect comparable to someone with six to eight degrees, one of which in the neighborhoods of physics and another in chemistry, i.e. equivalent to a "new Aristotle" (Raymond Fosdick, 1924) or "few super Einsteins" (William Wheeler, c.1935).

Overview
Of currently reactively "existing" thinkers, moving about the surface of the earth presently, the pickings are slim, in respect to who could be remotely ranked as a "social Newton", as compared to the great social Newton contenders of history; the big three shown below:

Social Newtons classical (top 3)

Most 21st century thinkers are so caught up in superficial secularity that the deeper questions have taken a back seat; it also is a peculiar set of circumstances that work to breed epicenter geniuses, of the Aristotle, Goethe, or Einstein type, namely: genius lightening phenomena (Ѻ), genius hiatus effect, early parental death, genius concourse phenomena (Ѻ), among other factors, not the least of, probabalistically, which will tend actuate in any given generation; not to mention the hydraism effect that grows with knowledge. One exception is American child prodigy turned astrophysicist Christopher Hirata, who, similar to like-minded child prodigies John Neumann, John Tukey, Goethe, arrived at a free energy model of existence (as a teen, in Hirata's case).

List
The following—a spin-off of the historical (non-existive) social Newton rankings—is a work-in-progress top "existive", i.e. currently in reactive existence, i.e. "alive" in defunct colloquial speak (see: life terminology upgrades), social Newtons. column abbreviations "CR" refers to citation rankings; ± refers to the current gauge, amid digestion of their work, as to whether they might tend to go up or down (↑↓) in rankings; the two-way reaction arrow ( \rightleftharpoons \,) signifies whether or not they used equilibrium reaction theory (or "R" human chemical reaction theory) in their work; and "Hu" signifies whether they employed human molecular theory, viewing people explicitly as either molecules "M" or chemicals "C", in some terminological form or another:
