ABOUT

 

The Philosophy Section is the space for MIND members to jointly advance the development and promotion of psychedelic philosophy. In our biweekly meetups, you will have the chance to discuss articles and ideas and develop common projects with other professionals in and beyond your field.

We aim at fostering the interaction between philosophers of various specialties (philosophy of mind, epistemology, ethics, political philosophy) as well as researchers from other human and society-related disciplines, in order to form a transdisciplinary network which focuses on shaping the development of a culture of consciousness or Bewusstseinskultur.

OUTCOMES

The outcomes of the Philosophy Section shall ultimately be shared with both academics and the broader public, via the MIND Academy platforms, as well as external ones (e.g. academic journals, talks and conferences).

Currently on preparation:

  • INSIGHT 2021 PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP
