GU4513: Buddhism and Neuroscience | B. Faure

Religion
Undergraduate and Graduate Seminar
Th 2:10-4PM

With the Dalai Lama’s marked interest in recent advances in neuroscience, the question of the compatibility between Buddhist psychology and neuroscience has been raised in a number of conferences and studies. This course will examine the state of the question, look at claims made on both sides, and discuss whether or not there is a convergence between Buddhist discourse about the mind and scientific discourse about the brain.
