The Natural Philosopher began in the fall of 2017 on The University of Vermont's campus. Thanks to two senior undergraduate neuroscience students, Chris Keim and Caleb Winn, The Natural Philosopher set out on a mission to expand scientific literacy in the general population. Ever since, TNP has been devoted to producing high-quality scientific writing and artwork accessible to readers of all educational backgrounds. Scientific literature doesn't just have to be for PhDs!
