Philip Franses

Senior Lecturer Holistic Science at Schumacher College
Born in 1958 in England, Philip studied mathematics at New College Oxford from 1976 to 1980. Academia’s dull explanation of the world inspired Philip on a counter-journey into the depths of experience, travelling and a re-sensitisation to quality. In 2005, after a fifteen-year career designing intelligent software, culminating in a programme now used in The Netherlands by all Dutch courts, Philip had a chance encounter with Satish Kumar and was moved to come to Schumacher as an MSc student. In 2009 Philip joined the faculty on the MSc in Holistic Science at Schumacher College and has been teaching as Senior Lecturer since then. Now Philip is moving to develop the application of Holistic Science in the world.

Philip began and edits the Holistic Science Journal. He is Director of the Flow Partnership and is the author of Time, Light and the Dice of Creation: Through Paradox in Physics to a New Order (Floris Books)
