Lecture: Arthur Zajonc, Science & Spirituality: Breaking Common Cognitive Ground
Arthur Zajonc, professor of physics from Amherst College, is internationally prominent in research on atomic physics and quantum mechanics, and is the author and editor of several books, including "The Quantum Challenge: Modern Research on the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics" and "Catching the Light: The Entwined History of Light and Mind." Long interested in bridging the disciplines of the sciences and the humanities, Zajonc has been integrally involved in the Mind and Life Dialogues that have brought together Western specialists in various sciences with the Dalai Lama and other contemplatives. Books he has co-edited that emerged from these dialogues are "The New Physics and Cosmology: Dialogues with the Dalai Lama" and "The Dalai Lama at MIT."
Zajonc's talk is the first in a newly endowed lecture series at Colorado College on Science and Spirituality. The series will present a talk every year by a distinguished scholar involved in interdisciplinary work in these areas.
Sponsored by Irma Johnson and William Budington.
