The Blind Spot: Experience, Science, and the Search for “Truth”

A workshop with philosophers, physicists, and cognitive scientists

What is “truth”? Can it be objectively defined? To what extent are scientific statements “true”? Is the truth in the physical sciences different than in pure mathematics? This workshop brings together an international group of philosophers, physicists, and cognitive neuroscientists to discuss the nature of truth in science and its relation to our experience of the world. Join us for what promises to be a fascinating discussion on the foundations of science and its relation to philosophy.
This event, moderated by ICE Director Marcelo Gleiser, is free and open to the public.
