Marcelo Gleiser, theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and a leading proponent of the view that science, philosophy, and spirituality are complementary expressions of humanity’s need to embrace mystery and the unknown, is the 2019 Templeton Prize Laureate. Gleiser, 60, the Appleton Professor of Natural Philosophy and a professor of physics and astronomy at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, has earned international acclaim through his books, TV documentaries, and conferences that present science as a spiritual quest to understand the origins of the universe and of life on Earth. A native of Brazil, Gleiser becomes the first Latin American to be awarded the Templeton Prize. Marcelo Gleiser was born in Rio de Janeiro to an influential family in Rio’s Jewish community, and received a conservative Hebrew school education.
