Pictures On My Pillow is the entertaining, lucid and thought-provoking autobiography of Dr. Patrick B. Crean, a Canadian ocean scientist and accomplished amateur philosopher/theologian. Written frankly and with great period detail, Crean's accounts are buoyed by an inimitable wit and a poignant recounting of his childhood, between the great wars, in rural England. His teen years would culminate in three expeditions to the Antarctic whaling grounds as a chemist. Crean's career in chemical engineering and physical oceanography continued with his immigration to Canada in 1953. In 1958 Crean met the Canadian Catholic theologian/philosopher Bernard Lonergan whose vision of the universe would encourage him to develop a foundation from which his own eventual feedback model and worldview would emerge. Thus Pictures On My Pillow provides a practical application of the feedback model that Crean presents in Science, Self-Knowledge and Spirituality (ISBN 978-1-897435-60-1).
