Unifying Science and Religion: 

Aleksei Ukhtomsky and the Psycho-Physiology of Salvation 

Join us as we delve into the life and contributions of Aleksei Ukhtomsky (1875-1942) — a pioneering figure who dedicated his existence to bridging the realms of science and religion. Discover the richness of his diaries, lab notebooks, icons, and marginalia that tell a tale of a profound interconnection between Eastern Orthodox Old Belief and the world of physiology. Through this journey, we will shed light on his groundbreaking scientific concept of the “dominanta,” offering a holistic approach to mind-body relations and the journey to Salvation.
