This online Forum will be on the topic of “The Human Condition: Reality, Science and History”, as described below:
Professor Gregory Loew will discuss his new book, The Human Condition: Reality, Science and History, which touches on the nature of reality as we experience it, the progress and limitations of the natural and social sciences, the development of war and religion, the question of free will, the chaotic nature of history, the possible future of science and technology, the risks of tinkering with our genes and mental faculties, how we may upgrade our system of education to improve our social woes, and what improvements we might make to our economic, political, and international problems.
Professor Loew was named adjunct professor at SLAC in 1974 and professor in 1982. He became a fellow of the American Physical Society in 1993 and chaired its Committee on the International Freedom of Scientists in 1996. In 1958, he was a member of the microwave circuitry team, one of many teams tasked with designing SLAC, an accelerator distinguished by its length, high energy, and high current.
