Bas Haring

Philosopher & Writer

We are used to see nature in green stuff: grass, trees, animals, we love it. Yet, we may in the same way love the things we've created ourselves, but no longer control.

Both philosopher and writer of popular science and children's literature, as well as professor in the Public Understanding of Science at the University of Leiden.

Bas Haring wrote various popular books including 'Kaas en de evolutietheorie', 'De ijzeren wil' and 'Plastic panda's'.
