Science and Subjectivity

  • Founded
    2018
  • Seminar Number
    791

The Seminar on Science and Subjectivity was established in 2018 after a prior period of a few years as a class in the Hovde Seminar series at the Heyman center. The Seminar continues to follow the format that worked well in that earlier iteration: we all read a book in advance of the session; we all have something to say about it; then we all have dinner and continue the conversation.  In future sessions we plan to invite scholars who are focused on the work we are discussing to join our discussions; otherwise we plan to remain a convivial group of interested and articulate readers willing to delve deeply into the intersection of science and individual subjective experience.
