Mind and Emptiness: Perspectives on the Nature of Consciousness


Conference presented by Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Engagement at Dartmouth and Upper Valley Zen Center, Dartmouth Zen Practice

Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH

We propose a conference to bring together three perspectives on consciousness: the scientist, the philosopher, and the Buddhist. Our aim is dialogue across cherished distinctions between areas of study and between science and “religion.” It is a timely conversation in a changing world where openness and acceptance of different views contend with anger and fears of lost identity. Consciousness is not merely an academic concern, but one that underlies a ‘meeting of minds’ across all that divides us.
