Mind, Brain and Matter – Critical Conversations Between Buddhist Thought and Science.
Twenty of the world’s foremost scientists and philosophers with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and other senior Tibetan scholars will address topics over the course of the week that include the historical sweep of science and the revolutions in our understanding of our physical universe and the nature of the mind. Scientific and the classical Buddhist philosophical methods of inquiry will be studied, as well as selected topics in quantum physics, neuroscience, and Buddhist and contemporary Western views of consciousness. In addition, the applications of contemplative practices in clinical and educational settings will be explored.
From what I've seen so far, the presentations by scientists have been very interesting and illuminating, and Dalai Lama is in the role of student of science instead of religious authority, so I thought this might interest also members of this group.
