An International Award for Writing ե֭ Science

Throughout history, scientists and writers have sought to communicate with one another, despite barriers of language and process. ե֭ Lewis Thomas Prize for Writing about Science honors the rare individual who bridges both worlds—whose voice and vision can tell us about science’s aesthetic and philosophical dimensions, providing not merely new information but cause for reflection, even revelation.
