Mind & Life XXVI Konferenz - MIND, BRAIN AND MATTER:
Critical Conversations Between Buddhist Thought and Science
His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Tania Singer and 19 other scientists and philosophers, and several senior Tibetan scholars.
In addition to critically engaging in important questions of mutual interest and challenge such as the fundamental nature of our physical world, the problem of consciousness, the nature and workings of our mind, and the interface of contemplative practice and scientific research, this conference also aims to offer an educational forum, whereby the monastic students can learn about the historical development of science, and how science has come to shape the way we understand our world.
