Our thoughts, feelings and actions result from the continuous adjustment and readjustment of physiological mechanisms, cultural factors, ideological discourses and philosophical traditions, shaping our contact with the world. Recent discoveries in neuroscience (e.g. the brain’s plasticity) have greatly increased our chances of studying the relationship between biology, philosophy and art. This crossover of knowledge helps us discover new ways of thinking, feeling and acting in the world. To begin with, each guest will ask the other participants a question, thus generating an open discussion.
