Zurich – Neuroscience, Evolution, and the Philosophy of Mind
In April of 2016, the University of Zurich, in collaboration with ETH Zurich, had the privilege of hosting ACIT Global’s debut conference. Benjamin Bargetzi, the President of ACIT Global, facilitated the event that dived deeply into the enthralling intersection of neuroscience, evolution, and the philosophy of mind.
The interdisciplinary conference shed light on the riveting questions related to the functioning of the modern human brain and its evolution. Attendees were encouraged to contemplate: Why does the human brain function as it does today? How does the tangible, biological brain intersect with the intangible realms of thoughts, self-perception, and rationality?
Throughout the day, lecture halls buzzed with engagement as various experts from ACIT Global took to the stage, presenting their insights and findings. The event proved to be a significant success, drawing an audience of 137 participants, comprised of both inquisitive students and dedicated professors.
Reflecting on this groundbreaking event, we feel an immense sense of gratitude to all who attended, contributed, and facilitated lively discussions. The day served as an exemplar of the progressive discourse that emerges when the worlds of neuroscience, evolution, and philosophy converge.
We look forward to more enlightening events in the future and cherish the memory of this foundational conference.
