Philosophical Foundations of Neurophysiology: Interoception & Whitehead's Modes of Perception

Thursday, March 23, 2017 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm
Haddon, CST
Event Description: 

The purpose of this event is to demonstrate the clear link between Whitehead's modes of perception and interoception qua neurovisceral axis, homeostasis, intuition and emotion, and to develop this logic in terms of a geomodal diagram. It is run as a seminar because it is meant to be a 45-minute guided presentation/interactive conversation, followed by questions/comments and further discussion. Guests are invited to come and listen, or get involved and create a dialog.

Jesse Bettinger received his doctorate from the Claremont Graduate University in 2015, introducing a framework for a process-based emergent physics coinciding with the philosophical programme of Whitehead's actual entities. In the summers he teaches an intensive neuroscience survey course including full-lab, research module and evening seminars at Johns Hopkins University's Center for Talented Youth. A former assistant soccer coach, four seasons with the mens' team at Pomona-Pitzer Colleges, and three with womens' team at Claremont McKenna-Mudd-Scripps, currently he is a visiting research scholar at the Center for Talented Youth, and also films for the Claremont Colleges Rugby team.
