The Beyond Belief Conferences are becoming an annual event – the third conference occurring at the beginning of this month. The are a great source of new and stimulating material related to belief, reason and the popularising of science. Organised by The Science Network videos from the conferences go on line quickly and receive a lot of attention.
Videos from this year’s conference Beyond Belief: Candles in the Dark are currently going up. (There may be difficulties due to numerous downloads). I normally download the lot, burn them to DVD and watch at my leisure. DVDs of the previous two conferences can be purchased on line.
This year the speakers were asked to propose a Candle – a potential solution to a problem that they have identified in their area of expertise or informed passion. Presentations are groups in session with the titles Human Flourishing/Eudaimonics, Politics and the Brain, Morality & the Brain, Money & the Brain, and Law & the Brain. More details on the Speakers and conference agenda are at the web site.
The list of speakers and the agenda indicate a very stimulating conference. I am looking forward to viewing these videos.
