Georges Dreyfus to give a talk at Chula


Public Lecture


Georges B. Dreyfus
Jackson Professor of Religion
Williams College, USA

In this talk I will discuss Buddhist theories of consciousness and their relation to views of the self. I will argue that among the many Buddhist views on this topic, the Yogacara tradition offers resources for Buddhist thinkers to elaborate a view of consciousness and the self that treads a middle way between reductionist and Cartesian views of consciousness and the self.

Date and Time: March 20, 2009, 1 – 3 pm
Venue: Room 309, Boromratchakumari Bldg., Faculty of Arts, Chulalongkorn University
