Dr. Martin Cohen
As well as The Doomsday Machine: the World’s Most Dangerous Fuel, a book that Matthew Wald described in the New York Times as a a “polemic against the atom”, but Graham Nash, of Rock & Roll fame, defended vigorously as “a well-reasoned and thoughtful perspective on the real costs of nuclear power”, other books include ‘Paradigm Shift: How Expert Opinions Keep Changing onLife, the Universe and Everything’; two ‘for Dummies’ books, and even a look’ at food science, called, ‘I Think Therefor I Eat’, which blends philosophy and food offering surprising insights into why everything we eat makes us fat, and seems to have more to do with laboratories than farms. He is a Visiting Research Fellow in Philosophy at the University of Hertfordshire (UK) as well as a Visiting Lecturer in English and Social Science at the University of Pau (France). He is also Editor of The Philosopher, one of the world’s oldest philosophical magazines with a tradition of writing “philosophy for all.”
