Date:3/11/2010

The 9th Annual International Bioethics Forum, "Taking the Measure of the Magic Mirror: Toward a Science of Consciousness" will be held April 22-23, 2010 in Madison, WI.

Madison, WI (PRWEB) March 11, 2010 -- The 9th Annual International Bioethics Forum, “Taking the Measure of the Magic Mirror: Toward a Science of Consciousness” will be held April 22-23, 2010 in Madison, WI.

What is consciousness? Guided by leaders in their fields, including philosophy, physics, botany, neurochemistry, and contemplative practice, this year’s program is designed to allow participants to explore many dimensions of this topic:

 
  • What can we learn from thinkers of the past - how did they frame perception and reality?
  • What are entheogens and what has been their impact on human cultures and institutions?
  • How have altered states of consciousness influenced human history, culture and institutions?
  • Can consciousness be defined by brain chemistry, and, if so, how?
  • What are we learning about health and well being from research efforts and clinical studies that examine the neural basis of altered states of consciousness?
  • What are the roles of mindfulness and meditation in the exploration and evolution of consciousness?

Featured presenters include: Richard J. Davidson and Antoine Lutz of UW-Madison; Roland Griffiths of Johns Hopkins University; Charles S. Grob
