John Brockman (born February 16, 1941 in Boston, Massachusetts) is a literary agent and author specializing inscientific literature. He founded the Edge Foundation, an organization aimed to bring together people working at the edge of a broad range of scientific and technical fields. Referencing C.P. Snow’s “two cultures”, he introduced the “third culture” consisting of “those scientists and other thinkers in the empirical world who, through their work and expository writing, are taking the place of the traditional intellectual in rendering visible the deeper meanings of our lives, redefining who and what we are.”
