Thomas Swan is a writer and scientist from England. Inspired by Carl Sagan's Cosmos, he became a doctor of physics in 2011. The link to the right presents a selection of his physics papers. An enduring interest in the evolution and psychology of religion compelled Thomas to switch fields to study the cognitive science of religion. He recently completed a second PhD, in this subject. His hubs reflect this diverse panoply of interests, covering topics such as psychology, religion, politics, history, soccer, physics, evolutionary theory, anthropology, philosophy, classical music, mythology, and emotional influences on the formation of religious beliefs.
