CCBB: Laurence Browne - The Many Faces of Coincidence

Connecting with Coincidence with Dr. Bernard Beitman, MD

May 15 2020 • 1 hr

Laurence Browne was born in the UK in 1951 to parents living in the Far East and spent much of his childhood there, though at the age of nine was sent to boarding school in England. After completing secondary school in 1969 (Radley College, Oxford), he came to Australia working mainly as a teacher of English as a second language. He is married with two daughters and lives in suburban Brisbane

He has been interested ever since his early twenties in the possibility of an inner truth and has been a regular meditator since the 1970s. In 2009 he gave up teaching to pursue a PhD in Philosophy at the University of Queensland, gaining his doctorate in 2014. The title of his thesis was Examining Coincidences: towards an integrated approach. In 2017 this was turned into a book released by Imprint Academic, Exeter, U.K. under the title The Many Faces of Coincidence.

Over the last couple of years he has been particularly interested in the topic of coincidences in literature and has written two journal articles on the subject. The first of these, ‘Coincidence in Fiction and Literature’, was published in 2019 in the Australian Journal of Parapsychology.
