" Ultimately the Universe has to be understood as a single undivided whole"
—David Bohm

Welcome to www.dkscott.com, a site devoted to the activities of David K. Scott. More information may be found on the archived University of Massachusetts site for former chancellors. This site gives information up to 2001.


David K. Scott was born and lived as a boy on the northernmost of the Orkney Islands off the north coast of Scotland--a small island 4 miles by 2 mileswith a population of 100 people. This experience led to his early interest in nature and science, and to the interconnectedness of matter, body, mind,soul and spirit. He worked as a nuclear scientist for 20 years with interests in extreme states of matter, such as existed in the Big Bang theory of the origin of the Universe, and for the last 20 years as an educator and University administrator--most recently as Chancellor of the University of Massachusetts Amherst. All these experiences over 60 yearshave converged on his current interest in integrative learning and action, and in the next stage of human consciousness evolution to more integral and holistic approaches to knowledge and its application in the world.

Here you will find links to David Scott's papers and presentations, his teaching, his involvement with the CILA project, as well as other items of general interest to educators, practitioners and students.
