Initially a chemistry and electrochemistry researcher with an educational background in Australia, Henry Bauer later delved into the history, philosophy, and sociology of science, focusing on distinguishing genuine science from pseudo-science. His academic journey took him from Austria to the United States, where he became a significant contributor to Virginia Tech's Center for the Study of Science in Society and served as Dean of Arts & Sciences. Post-retirement, he edited the Journal of Scientific Exploration, tackling issues like scientific misconceptions, political correctness, and unethical practices in science. His publications, including critiques on scientific literacy and method, reflect his commitment to challenging scientific orthodoxies.

His books include Science or Pseudoscience: Magnetic Healing, Psychic Phenomena, and Other Heterodoxies and Scientific Literacy and the Myth of the Scientific Method.
