The Implicate Order in Science and Art
F. David Peat
Deeply interested in the relationships among science, creativity, art, and culture, F. David Peat has organized several conferences between artists and scientists, both in London (1990) and in Ontario. His book Blackfoot Physics grew out of discussions at Native American Elders and Western Scientists “circles” he held in Canada. He also hosted the 20-program series “A Question of Physics” (a history of physics in the 20th century), aired on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s radio program Ideas, and a five-part radio series on “Meditation and the Brain,” among others. He has written and directed several plays for film and radio and authored 16 books, including a biography of fellow physicist David Bohm, and the books Glimpsing Reality: Ideas in Physics and the Link to Biology; Superstrings and the Search for the Theory of Everything; and Synchronicity: The Bridge between Matter and Mind.
Born in Liverpool, England, F. David Peat, 69, holds a Ph.D.. in theoretical physics from Liverpool University, and taught at Queens’ University, Kingston, Ontario before carrying out research and consulting for the National Research Council of Canada and serving as Chairman of the Division of Theoretical Physics at the Canadian Institute of Physics. Presently, he lives in Pari, Italy, where he has established the Pari Center for New Learning.
