Experimenting the Self. What Neuroscience, Psychology, and Philosophy Can Teach Us.
In this lecture/workshop we will discuss several paradigms in current research regarding the constitution and boundaries of our self. The focus will be on research from neuroscience, but we will also explore in what ways culture and art might have a liberating effect that pushes our boundaries. The format will be rather open: I will introduce some studies and ideas that relate to the topic and we will hopefully enter into a discussion on those.
The presentation will be in English, but we can discuss and explore ideas in German as well.
