From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Geoffrey N. Cantor (born 1943) is professor of history and philosophy of science at the University of Leeds. He has written extensively on the history of science since the 17th century, including books upon Michael Faraday, the wave theory of light and the responses of the Quaker and Jewish religions to science.[1] With John Hedley Brooke he delivered the 1995–1996 Gifford Lecture at the University of Glasgow which was subsequently published as Reconstructing Nature: The Engagement of Science and Religion in 1998.[2]

He worked upon the SciPer project which researched the popularisation of science in the periodicals of the 19th century such as the Boy's Own Paper and Punch and lectured upon the subject at the Royal Institution in 2005.[3]
