Nancy Ellen Abrams

Nancy Ellen Abrams has a bachelors degree in history and philosophy of science from the University of Chicago, and a law degree from the University of Michigan. She has worked at international law firms, at the Ford Foundation, and for the U.S. Congress. 

She co-created Scientific Mediation, a means of handling scientific disputes in public policy-making, and has consulted on this for Sweden, state governments, and corporations. She is also a writer whose work has appeared in numerous journals, magazines, and books, and a musician who has performed her original songs at conferences, public concerts, and spiritual events in fourteen countries and been featured on radio and television. 

With her husband, cosmologist Joel Primack, she co-authored a prize-winning article on quantum cosmology and Kabbalah. They developed the popular course Cosmology and Culture and have been teaching it since 1996 at the University of California, Santa Cruz. In 1999 with support from the American Council of Learned Societies, they added contemplative practice to the course. Nancy Abrams has been interested in science’s border with the spiritual since studying with Mircea Eliade at the University of Chicago, and she works as a scholar to put the discoveries of modern cosmology into a cultural context and as an artist to communicate their meaning at an emotional level.
