Alfred William Lawson (March 24, 1869 - November 29, 1954) was an English-born American aviation pioneer, responsible for the founding of the first U.S. airliner during the 1920s, and later proponent of a school of philosophy he called Lawsonomy (The Base of Absolute Knowledge), which, among other things, taught his own peculiar alternatives to conventional physics (such as Lawson's Law of Penetrability and Zig-Zag-and-Swirl Movement), economics (Direct Credits Society), etc.
