From Object to Subject: Consciousness at the Center of a Necessary “Reframing” of Science and the Production of Knowledge
A comment to Piet Hut’s “From Knowing What You Have to Waking Up to What You Are”. The disconnection between the object and the subject is at the center of Piet Hut’s presentation. The question is: how can we put together what, through the development of the scientific method over the last 400 years, we consider to be objective knowledge of the world (universal, physical, observable) and the subjective (the way we, as individuals, look at things, interpret them, are moved by them) without running into contradictions and analytical problems?
Please join us for drinks and a discussion that riffs on evolutionary theory and speculates on the properties of thought. Dr. William Chang (Albert Einstein College of Medicine) will lead a discussion on how biological entities from enzymes to brains achieve both coherence and diversity of behavior.
