Freeman Dyson
Freeman Dyson is a retired professor of physics at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. He has worked on pure mathematics, atomic physics, nuclear reactors, solid-state physics, astrophysics and biology. He has written a number of books about science for the general public. Disturbing the Universe (1979) is a portrait-gallery of people he has known during his career as a scientist. Weapons and Hope (1984) is a study of the ethical problems of war and peace. The Sun, the Genome and the Internet (1999) discusses the question whether modern technology could be used to narrow the gap between rich and poor rather than to widen it.
