Nancy has always been intrigued by science's border with myth. She strives as a philosopher to put the discoveries of modern cosmology into a cultural context and as a musician to communicate their possible meanings at a deeper level. In her seminal book, A God That Could be Real, she answers the question:
“Could anything actually exist in the scientific universe that is worthy of being called God?”
Nancy is also an activist engaged in the role of science in shaping a new politics. And Nancy is an artist and a patron of the arts, because she believes passionately that there cannot be a new picture of reality -- whether cosmological, political, or spiritual -- without the creative participation of artists.
She's a graduate of the University of Chicago, with a degree in the History and Philosophy of Science, and a JD. from the University of Michigan Law School.
