Philip Ball, Writer

Waterloo Collegiate Institute - 300 Hazel St. Waterloo

Curiosity is often said to drive science, but until the seventeenth century – the age of the so-called Scientific Revolution – it was regarded with suspicion and condemnation. What happened to liberate curiosity? Why did no question seem too vast or trivial to be ruled out of bounds? And what does the freedom to be curious really mean for science today?

PHILIP BALL is a freelance writer. He previously worked for over 20 years as an editor for the international science journal Nature. He writes regularly in the scientific and popular media, and has authored many books on the interactions of the sciences, the arts, and the wider culture, including The Self-Made Tapestry: Pattern Formation in Nature, H2O: A Biography of Water, Bright Earth, Universe of Stone and The Music Instinct. His latest book is Curiosity: How Science Became Interested in Everything. His book Critical Mass won the 2005 Aventis Prize for Science Books.
