Keynote Title :
“The false dichotomy: mind, body and other in a modern world.”
About the keynote :
Rene Descartes famously stated ‘I think, therefore I am’. Behind this statement was the belief that the mind and body are separate entities. This type of dualism disconnected human beings from the bodies that they lived in.
In recent years, the West has begun to regain its connection to the body, and see that the mind and body intrinsically influence one another.
In this keynote speech, Rebecca will invite you to go one step further. Rather than seeing the mind and body has separate elements which are albeit deeply affected by one another, she will put forward a case to argue that the mind is the body. In other words, that the experience of being conscious is an entirely embodied one.
Through all, she will be inviting you to reflect and experience being your own body.
