Ways of Knowing in Newtonian, Contemporary, and Future Science
Uldis Blukis, PhD
Attention to ways of knowing helps understand the sources, production, and nature of what we know. This evolving epistemological system is built with the mortar of systems thinking and the bricks found in the history and philosophy of science, the theory of evolution, semiotics, and theology, as well as neuro- and cognitive sciences.
Uldis Blukis, PhD, is professor emeritus, Brooklyn College, CUNY, where, from 1960 to 1991, he taught chemistry, integrated science, and the history of the science of matter.
From 1991 to 1998 he served in the diplomatic service of Latvia as a representative to the UN. From 1994-2000 he was a member of the UN Committee on Contributions. He is the co-author of a physical chemistry textbook, as well as of a series of educational short films.
His BS in chemistry is from the University of Illinois, Urbana. His PhD in physical chemistry is from the University of California, Berkeley.
