Brain and Being. At the boundary between science, philosophy, language and arts
This collection of papers comes out of a meeting held at the Institute for Scientific Interchange in Torino, Italy, in November 2002. The aim was to explore the possibilities for dialogue between workers in quantum brain theory and in the humanities, in particular art, philosophy and language. Although there have been attempts to reconcile the cognitive and brain sciences with the humanities, the tendency is for the humanities to be fit to the Procrustean bed of the computational brain as wet computer. The extension of the quantum revolution in physics to quantum neurophysics might open a true cooperative dynamics.
