Stuart Brown Biography

Dr. Stuart Brown is the Founder and President of The National Institute for Play. Trained in general and internal medicine, psychiatry and clinical research, Dr. Brown first recognized the importance of play by discovering its absence in the life stories of murders and felony drunken drivers. His years of clinical practice and review of over 6000 personal play histories affirmed the importance and need for healthy play throughout the human life cycle. His independent scholarship and exploration of the evolution and neuroscience of human and animal play have led to the establishment of the National Institute for Play.

The Mission of the National Institute for Play (NIFP) is to bring the unrealized knowledge, practices and benefits of play into public life. Dr. Brown was the instigator and Executive Producer of the three-part PBS series, “The Promise of Play,” and coproduced the BBC-PBS series “Soul of the Universe,” as well as the PBS- National Geographic program, “Stress, the Portrait of a Killer.” His experience as a medical administrator, producer, and scientific consultant or creator to numerous other productions on Joseph Campbell, Cosmology, Animal Play, plus his scientific and popular writings have identified him as the foremost “practical champion of the knowledge of play.”

Dr. Brown’s book: Play: How it Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul has been translated into twelve languages. With IDEO principal Brendan Boyle, he co-teaches From Play to Innovation at the Hasso Plattner School of Design at Stanford University, and is the “Key Strategist” for the Nevada Medical Center and other Las Vegas resources supporting the establishment of the Global Play Science Institute. In addition to regular creative scholarly contributions to the PlayCore company, he enjoys many other international corporate and academic consulting opportunities to advocate play and its many contributions as it positively reshapes corporate culture. Individually, of course, it enhances overall human well-being. Our species, he says, “is built for play, and built by play.”
