Biographical history

Professor S. Warren Carey (as he preferred to be known) was appointed Foundation Professor of Geology at UTAS and took up duties on 27 October 1946. He personified a philosophy of synthesis/integration that lies at the heart of large-scale disciplines such as geology and astronomy. This philosophy is complementary to but sometimes seen to be in conflict with the reductionist approach that characterises so much modern science. He was also a strong proponent of the mantra of 'We are blinded by what we think we know; disbelieve if you can'. For more information see
