Henry H. Bauer
Henry H. Bauer (b. 1931 in Austria) is an emeritus Virginia Tech professor of chemistry and the philosophy of science. One of his respected specialities has been the study of fringe science. His 1984 book Beyond Velikovsky: The History of a Public Controversy (University of Illinois Press) was widely reviewed and well received. Similarly was his 1994 book Scientific Literacy and the Myth of the Scientific Method. He has come under fire since his identification of the HIV/AIDS model as fringe science. Such an identification can be found in his 2007 book The Origin, Persistence and Failings of HIV/AIDS Theory.
