Manjit Kumar has degrees in physics and philosophy. He was the founding editor of Prometheus, an interdisciplinary journal that covered the arts and sciences, and is the co-author of Science and the Retreat from Reason, which introduced key areas of modern science while defending notions of social progress and scientific advance.
Published in 1995, it was critically acclaimed as a ‘corrective to the hype’, ‘thought-provoking’, and ‘undoubtedly one of the best introductions one can find to the crisis of confidence within science itself’.
He has written and reviewed for various publications including the Guardian, Indioendent, Times, Sunday Telegraph, New Scientist and Tehelka. He was Consulting Science Editor at Wired.
Majit's latest book is Quantum: Einstein, Bohr and the Great Debate about the Nature of Reality which was Shortlisted for the 2009 BBC Samuel Johnson Prize.
