Reader in History and Philosophy of Science
University of Cambridge
Richard Staley is Hans Rausing Lecturer and Reader in History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Cambridge. Having learned and taught in Melbourne, Cambridge, Berlin, Madison and Cambridge, he’s interested in historical work for the future – for that offers the clearest way of integrating our sciences with an appropriately rich sense of responsibility. Author of Einstein’s Generation and the Origins of the Relativity Revolution, he pursues a long-term project linking the histories of physics and anthropology and is currently engaged in two collaborative research projects, the Leverhulme Trust funded Making Climate History, and Histories of AI: A Genealogy of Power.
