Tübingen International Summer School (TISS) 2018 - Shadows of Consciousness:
venue & time: Kloster Heiligkreuztal, 11. – 14.09.2018
Organisation: CIN / Forum Scientiarum
The interest we have in understanding complex processes as memory, intelligence, attention, and, ultimately, consciousness, is guided by philosophy, psychology, and since the last century by the relatively-new-academic-discipline, neuroscience. However, philosophy and neuroscience usually refer to those cognitive processes which we are aware of only. But, what happens when our awareness goes off, when the conscious ego does not identify itself anymore? What happens to our consciousness when we sleep, dream, and die? The summer school seeks to explore these shadows of consciousness. Do such shadows, in fact, accompany even those cognitive processes which we are aware of?
What can neuroscience, philosophy, psychology and literature say about the consciousness and its shadows?
With keynotes from Niels Birbaumer, Jan Born, Camille Chatelle, Susanne Goumegou, Martin Teising
