“Sorting Facts from Truth - Science as a Way of Knowing" As our society becomes increasingly polarized by rhetoric, it is worth taking a second to remind ourselves where the knowledge comes from. Knowledge is a statement about what you accept as being sufficiently real enough to use it in the decision-making processes that govern how your live your life. However, not all forms of knowledge are equivalent. For this reason, it is critical to understand where knowledge comes from, what facts represent, that truth is not universal, and why you don’t necessarily always need to believe something. Kurtis Burmeister, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in the Department of Environmental & Geological Sciences at the University of the Pacific. He completed a BA in Biological Sciences and a MA in Vertebrate Paleontology at the UC Santa Barbara before earning his PhD in Structural Geology at the University of Illinois.
