Congratulations to our colleague Mohan Matthen on his election to the Royal Society of Canada!!
The citation reads: “Mohan Matthen has contributed importantly to three philosophical sub disciplines. He showed how Greek ontology was shaped by the syntax of the Greek verb “to be”, and how Greek cosmology treats the universe as a single substance. He pioneered the statistical interpretation of the neo-Darwinian Theory of Natural Selection and espoused a relational view of species. He has played a synthesizing role in perception by treating knowledge formation as a kind of action.”
