Professor Emeritus, Institute for Advanced Study, School of Natural Sciences

Freeman Dyson is now retired, having been for most of his life a professor of physics at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. He was born in England and worked as a civilian scientist for the Royal Air Force in World War 2. He graduated from Cambridge University in 1945 with a BA degree in mathematics. He came to Cornell University as a graduate student in 1947 and worked with Hans Bethe and Richard Feynman. His most useful contribution to science was the unification of the three versions of quantum electrodynamics invented by Feynman, Schwinger and Tomonaga. Cornell University made him a professor without bothering about his lack of a Ph. D. He subsequently worked on nuclear reactors, solid-state physics, ferromagnetism, astrophysics and biology, looking for problems where elegant mathematics could be usefully applied.

Dyson has written a number of books about science for the general public. “Disturbing the Universe” (1979) is a portrait-gallery of people he has known during his career as a scientist. “Weapons and Hope” (1984) is a study of the ethical problems of war and peace. “Infinite in All Directions” (1988) is a philosophical meditation, based on Dyson’s Gifford Lectures on Natural Theology given at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. “Origins of Life” (1986, second edition 1999) is a study of one of the major unsolved problems of science. “The Sun, the Genome and the Internet” (1999) discusses the question whether modern technology could be used to narrow the gap between rich and poor rather than to widen it. Dyson is a fellow of the American Physical Society, a member of the US National Academy of Sciences, and a fellow of the Royal Society of London. In 2000 he was awarded the Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion.
