Geoffrey Cantor

Geoffrey Cantor (1943) es profesor emérito de Historia de la Ciencia en la Universidad de Leeds.
El profesor Cantor se formó como físico, obteniendo su doctorado en radiofísica en el King’s College de Londres. Junto con esa investigación descubrió la Historia y Filosofía de la Ciencia y comenzó a tomar cursos con Larry Laudan en ese tema nuevo y emocionante para él, mientras enseñaba física en una escuela. El departamento de Historia y Filosofía de la Ciencia en la Universidad de Indiana le dio la oportunidad de trabajar como historiador. Ha pasado la mayor parte de su vida profesional enseñando Historia y Filosofía de la Ciencia en la Universidad de Leeds, pasando gradualmente de la historia de la física a los estudios históricos sobre ciencia y religión.
Es miembro del comité general de la International Society for Science and Religion (Sociedad Internacional de la Ciencia y la Religión), y forma parte del consejo editorial de Studies in History and Philosophy of Science (Estudios de Historia y Filosofía de la Ciencia).
Sus intereses de investigación incluyen la historia de la física (especialmente sobre la óptica de los siglos XVIII y XIX), la ciencia y la religión (especialmente judíos y cuáqueros comprometidos con la ciencia) y la ciencia en el siglo XIX.
Cantor, junto con el Profesor John Hedley Brooke pronunció en 1995-1996 las Conferencias Gifford en la Universidad de Glasgow. El libro resultante de sus conferencias Gifford lleva por título Reconstructing Nature: The Engagement of Science and Religion (1998) (Reconstruir la Naturaleza: La Participación de la Ciencia y la Religión)
Actualmente es Honorary Senior Research Fellow (Departamento de Estudios en Ciencia y Tecnología) del University College London.
