Reflections on Books and Selected Publications
Marcelo Gleiser is a theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and a leading proponent of the view that science, philosophy, and spirituality are complementary expressions of humanity’s need to embrace mystery and the unknown.
THE APPLETON PROFESSOR of Natural Philosophy and a professor of physics and astronomy at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, he has earned international acclaim through his books, essays, blogs, TV documentaries, and conferences that present science as a spiritual quest to understand the origins of the universe and of life on Earth. A native of Brazil, where his books are bestsellers and his television series draw audiences in the millions, Gleiser is the first Latin American to be awarded the Templeton Prize.
