Peter Russell – Het primaat van bewustzijn

Peter Russell stelt voot dat ‘mind’ meer fundamenteel is dan ‘matter’. Hij verkent het robleem dat de wetenschap heeft met het verklaren van bewustzijn, en argumenteert dat bewustzijn niet gecreerd wordt door de hersenen maar dat het een inherente kwaliteit is van alle levende wezens.

Peter Russell proposes that mind is more fundamental than matter. He explores the problems science has explaining consciousness and argues that consciousness is not created by the brain, but is inherent in all beings.
A recent talk from SAND conference updates this material and takes it further.

Peter Russell is een fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, van The World Business Academy en van The Findhorn Foundation, and een Honorary Member van The Club of Budapest.

At Cambridge University (UK), he studied mathematics and theoretical physics. Then, as he became increasingly fascinated by the mysteries of the human mind he changed to experimental psychology. Pursuing this interest, he traveled to India to study meditation and eastern philosophy, and on his return took up the first research post ever offered in Britain on the psychology of meditation. In the 1970s, he was one of the first people to introduce human potential seminars into the corporate field, and for twenty years ran programs for senior management on creativity, stress management, personal development, and sustainable development.
