Biographical details

Dean received his PhD from the University of Leeds in 2004, under the supervision of Steven French, with a thesis on conceptual issues in quantum gravity. He took up a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Calgary in 2005 (split between health sciences and philosophy), on the application of complex systems theory to population health. He joined HPS at the University of Sydney in 2007, receiving an ARC Australian Research Fellowship in 2008. He took up an ARC Future Fellowship in 2014. He has written various books, including the following:

  • Quantum Gravity in the First Half of the 20th Century: A Sourcebook(co-authored with Alex Blum). Edition Open Access: Max Planck Research Library for the History and Development of Knowledge, 2017.

  • Philosophy of Physics. Polity Press, 2016.

  • A Brief History of String Theory: From Dual Models to M-Theory. The Frontiers Collection.Springer, 2014.

  • Symmetry, Structure, and Spacetime. Series on Philosophy and Foundations of Physics, Volume 3. Elsevier, 2007.

  • Thinking about Science, Reflecting on Art(co-edited with O. Bueno, G. Darby, and S. French). Routledge, 2017.

  • Information and Interaction: Eddington, Wheeler, and the Limits of Knowledge(co-edited with Ian Durham). Springer, 2016.

  • The Structural Foundations of Quantum Gravity(co-edited with Steven French and JuhaSaatsi). Oxford University Press, 2006.

Research interests

Dean's primary research focus is the foundations of quantum gravity research. However, he also has strong interests in musicology, econophysics, climate science, neuroscience, psychology, transhumanism, computing and philosophy of religion. He plays the piano as often as he can (and the drums as often as he is allowed).

Teaching and supervision

Future PhD students with interests in the history and/or philosophy of physics should contact me with a thesis proposal.

Current projects

Dean is working on two book projects which should be completed in 2017:

  • Covered in Deep Mist: The Development of Quantum Gravity, 1916-1956 (Oxford University Press).
  • Thinking about Science, Reflecting on Art (co-edited with Otavio Bueno, George Darby, and Steven French, Routledge).

And the following two books (2018):

  • Time (co-authored with Kurt Sundermeyer and Claus Kiefer).
  • Life, the Multiverse, and Theories of Everything.

The following books/issues have recently been completed:

  • The Philosophy of Physics (Polity Press, 2016).
  • Information and Interaction (co-edited with Ian Durham, Springer, 2016)
  • Quantum Gravity in the First Half of the 20th Century: A Sourcebook (coedited with Alex Blum, Jurgen Renn, and Don Salisbury - Edition Open Access, Max Planck Institute).
  • "Dualities," forStudies in the History and Philosophy of Modern Physics(coedited with Elena Castellani).

Articles and chapters in progress

A paper on the renaissance of general relativity in the 1950s (with David Kaiser: MIT) is in progress.
