By Sthita-dhi-muni dasa

A few months back Krishna Kripa Prabhu and myself posted a short biographical essay of Sadaputa Prabhu (Richard L. Thompson) on Dandavats. com based on our research here in Alachua with Sadaputa’s archival materials. Since then, we have found copies of the original signed letters of appreciation featured on the back cover of the BBT’s Mechanistic and Nonmechanistic Science (1981), from the two Nobel Prize winners in Physics, Eugene Wigner (1963) and Brian Josephson (1973). Perhaps our readers here and elsewhere might be interested to view copies of the documents suggesting a notable level of professional appreciation for both the quality of Sadaputa Prabhu’s work, and in especially in this case, with reference to his presentation on modern science and Vaisnava philosophy.

We have quite a variety of letters and documents from well established scientists, academics, and scientific institutions that reflect well on Richard L. Thompson as a practicing scientist. In fact, based on his reading of Mechanistic and Nonmechanistic Science, Brian Josephson invited Sadaputa to spend a year with him at the prestigious Cavendish Laboratory at the Cambridge University Department of Physics. Along with copies of exchanges between Josephson and Thompson, we have additional items such as a bulletin from the Cavendish “Theory of Condensed Matter” group on a presentation in the “TCM Seminar Room” featuring Thompson speaking on the topic, “Physics and the Effort to Formulate a Universal World-View.” We plan to make these and similar documents available on a memorial website library dedicated to Sadaputa’s work.
