The Science of Consciousness: Scientific and Buddhist Perspectives  (Academic)

In this talk, Dr. Wallace will critique scientific materialism, and present an approach to understanding the nature of consciousness that integrates scientific with religious empiricism.

Dynamic lecturer, well-known scholar, and one of the most prolific writers on and translators of Tibetan Buddhism in the West, B. Alan Wallace, Ph.D., continually seeks innovative ways to integrate Buddhist contemplative practices with Western science to advance the study of the mind. Dr. Wallace holds an undergraduate degree in physics and the philosophy of science from Amherst College and a doctorate in Religious Studies from Stanford University. He is author of numerous books on the science of consciousness, including Hidden Dimensions: The Unification of Physics and Consciousness (Columbia UP, 2007), Contemplative Science: Where Buddhism and Neuroscience Converge (Columbia UP, 2009), and many others.
