IMS: Chaos and Fuzzy Logic, TechNation

Chaos and Fuzzy Logic

In this program, Dr. Moira Gunn meets with Margaret Wheatley, author of "Management and the New Science: Learning About Organization from an Orderly Universe," and professor of management at Brigham Young University. Wheatley discusses how the view of the universe from the perspective of the new science, i.e., chaos theory, quantum mechanics, and space, may be used to understand and work with organizations.

Dr. Gunn also speaks with Batt Kosko, a professor at the University of Southern California. His article on fuzzy logic appeared in the July, 1993 issue of Scientific American. Dr. Kosko expands on the theory of fuzzy logic, relating it to all of western philosophy and thinking, and discusses why it is important that people who are not scientists should know about fuzzy logic. He is the author of the new book "Fuzzy Thinking: The New Science of Fuzzy Logic."
