Why don’t scientists have more authority in government?
Robert P. Crease
Robert P. Crease uses laboratory history to examine key issues in philosophy of science, science studies, and ethics. A professor at Stony Brook University, he has written, translated and edited numerous books on the history and philosophy of science. He writes a monthly column called 'Critical Point' for Physics World, and is the co-editor-in-chief of Physics in Perspective. He recently co-authored The Quantum Moment: How Planck, Bohr, Einstein, and Heisenberg Taught Us to Love Uncertainty, and edited Science Policy Up Close, a collection of writing by John Marburger, former science adviser to the US president.
