  1. Provost’s Lecture: Karl Friston on “I Am Therefore I Think”

    Karl Friston is Professor of Neurology at University College London. He is a theoretical neuroscientist and an authority on brain imaging.  Although he trained in psychiatry, his revolutionary impact on studies of the brain derives from his inventive use of probability theory to analyse neural imaging data.  He invented statistical parametric mapping, voxel-based morphometry, and dynamic causal modelling. These contributions were motivated by schizophrenia research and theoretical studies of value-learning, formulated as the dysconnection hypothesis of schizophrenia. Friston currently works on models of functional integration in the human brain and the principles that underlie neuronal interactions. His main contribution to theoretical neurobiology is a free-energy principle for action and perception (active inference). He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2006 and became of Fellow of the Royal Society of Biology in 2012. He was the 2016 recipient of the Charles Branch Award for unparalleled breakthroughs in Brain Research and the Glass Brain Award, a lifetime achievement award in the field of human brain mapping. He holds Honorary Doctorates from the University of Zurich and Radboud University.

  2. Sean Plunket: Full Interview: New Zealand

    I’m afraid that I am somewhat behind with my YouTube postings, as I am dealing with very serious health issues with my wife, and the distress and complication associated with that has brought me to somewhat of a halt. This is an interview from New Zealand from a couple of months ago. I think it’s still relevant. I hope it’s still relevant.

    The interviewer, Sean Plunkett, is one of New Zealand’s more credible journalists, in my estimation. He’s received the Qantas Media Awards in radio and television categories, the New Zealand Radio Awards and the 2001 European Union Journalist Award.

  4. John Vervaeke - The Cognitive Enhancements of Shamanic Altered Stares of Consciousness

    This is a presentation given by John Vervaeke at a conference titled "Altered Mind/Altered Being: The Utility of Shamanic Practice"

    This talk will argue that shamanic ritual can induce an altered state of consciousness that enhances insight, mindsight, implicit learning, and optimizes cognition and consciousness in an integrated manner. This account integrates well theoretically with Winkleman’s work on cross modular and neuroaxial integration.

    John Vervaeke is an Assistant Professor, in the teaching stream. He has been teaching at the University of Toronto since 1994. He currently teaches courses in the Cognitive Science program including Introduction to Cognitive Science, and the Cognitive Science of Consciousness; courses in the Psychology department on thinking and reasoning with an emphasis on insight problem solving, cognitive development with an emphasis on the dynamical nature of development, and higher cognitive processes with an emphasis on intelligence, rationality, mindfulness, and the Psychology of wisdom.

    He also teaches a course in the Buddhism, Psychology and Mental Health program on Buddhism and Cognitive Science. He has won and been nominated for several teaching awards including the 2001 Students’ Administrative Council and Association of Part-time Undergraduate Students T…

  6. Vervaeke-Pageau 2018 Revisited, 2 Legitimate Ways of Finding Meaning in the Information Age

    #vervaeke #pageau #meaning_crisis My commentary on the John Vervaeke interview here - https://youtu.be/2PGglfl5j_I on Jonathan Pageau’s channel. Two approaches to Spirituality​, one more traditionally Western, One that is an approach based on Cog-Sci and Buddhism. Both excellent depending on your temperament and inclination. Both excellent for the problems we face today. Both have Dynamic Quality!!

    I read from Chapter 6 of John’s book here: https://books.openedition.org/obp/4274

  7. The Intellectual Deep Web? Peter Limberg

    In the viral article "The Memetic Tribes Of Culture War 2.0", Peter Limberg and Conor Barnes described how the binary right/left culture war of the 90s was fragmenting into a multipolar war - Culture War 2.0.

    In this discussion with Rebel Wisdom’s David Fuller, Peter discusses the tribes of Culture War 2.0, including one of the most recent entries, the Intellectual Dark Web.

  8. Rebel Wisdom Summit, a new kind of conversation

    In these polarised, fractured times, what does a real conversation look like? One where people feel free to speak their minds, change their minds, and to create the possibility of something genuinely new emerging. How do we discuss ideas and disagree with one another in a way that leads somewhere new, rather than forcing us deeper into tribalism?

    About five months ago, we committed to seeing what it might actually look like. And so, after months of planning, 150 people from around the world gathered in London for the first Rebel Wisdom Summit on Sunday, 12th of May.

    Featuring four of the most brilliant speakers we’ve interviewed on the channel — Bret Weinstein, Heather Heying, Iain McGilchrist and Jordan Greenhall — the Summit was unlike anything we’ve tried before; an experiment in having an immersive, participatory and evolutionary conversation.

    To register for the next one - please email: summit@rebelwisdom.co.uk

    This is a shorter film of the day - to see the entire event, and to join the conversation - become a Rebel Wisdom supporter: www.rebelwisdom.co.uk/plans

  10. Auckland LC Highlight 1: The Presumption of Innocence

    My wife, Tammy, and I toured Australia and New Zealand in February. I was lecturing about the topics covered in my book, 12 Rules for Life (and also Maps of Meaning, my first book). I had a number of the lectures professionally filmed. This is a highlight from my lecture in Auckland on the fundamental necessity of the presumption of innocence.
