Stephen L. Talbott

Stephen L. Talbott is a senior researcher at the Nature Institute and the editor of NetFuture, an online newsletter about technology and human responsibility which the New York Times has called an “undiscovered national treasure.” Mr. Talbott also serves as editor of In Context, the Nature Institute’s twice-yearly hardcopy journal.

Before coming to the Nature Institute, Mr. Talbott did software work and technical writing for engineering organizations of computer manufacturers, ran a family organic farm in Oregon, and completed academic work in philosophy.

Mr. Talbott’s primary undertaking right now is a critique of conventional science with a view toward establishing the foundations of a new, qualitative science. This project, which requires an extraordinarily radical assessment of contemporary habits of thought, is discussed in more detail on the Nature Institute’s website here.
