Author Biography - William Taussig Scott

William Taussig Scott was a distinguished theoretical physicist with a lifelong interest in philosophy, and the author of The Physics of Electricity and Magnetism (1959) and Erwin Schrodinger: An Introduction to His Writings (1967). Two National Science Foundation Fellowships were critical in his development: at Yale he studied theology and met Michael Polanyi; at Oxford he immersed himself in philosophy and deepened his relationship with Polanyi, whom he found to be a bridge between authentic science and authentic faith. Martin X. Moleski, S.J. is Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Canisius College. He is the author of Personal Catholicism: The Theological Epistemologies of John Henry Newman and Michael Polanyi (2000)."
