Henry Bauer, PhD, is Austrian by birth, Australian by education, and American (since 1969) by choice. For twenty-five years, Bauer taught chemistry and carried on research in electrochemistry at the Universities of Sydney, Michigan, Southampton, and Kentucky. In the 1970s he turned to history, philosophy, and sociology of science, concerned particularly with how to differentiate science from pseudo-science. He was a founding member of the Center for the Study of Science in Society at Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University. From 1978 until 1986 he served as Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences. Upon retirement from teaching, he became Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Scientific Exploration. Bauer's present concerns include the deleterious effect on public discussions and public policy of misconceptions how science operates, of political correctness and misguided attacks on science, and of unethical practice in science. His books include Science or Pseudoscience: Magnetic Healing, Psychic Phenomena, and Other Heterodoxies and Scientific Literacy and the Myth of the Scientific Method.
