Edward Kelly PhD presents: Mind Beyond Brain: Towards Reconciliation of Science and Spirituality
This presentation will begin with a sketch of the 15-year Esalen “Sursem” (from “survival seminar”) project that resulted in the books Irreducible Mind (2007) and Beyond Physicalism (2015).
The former mainly sought to collect in one place a large amount of empirical evidence for various “rogue” psychological and physiological phenomena that resist or defy explanation in conventional physicalist terms, while the latter went on with a modest degree of success to the more difficult problem of identifying some more commodious sort of conceptual framework, or worldview, or metaphysical system potentially capable of accommodating those phenomena. Dr. Kelly will then go on to a brief account of subsequent developments including recent advances in both research and theory, which will result early next year in a third book in this series, and end by attempting to state succinctly what Dr. Kelly thinks the entire project adds up to, both intellectually and practically.
