Expansions of Quantum Theory towards Consciousness

Certificate Course organized by the ECR-Institute (Berlin) and hosted by the Dev Sanskriti University (Haridvar)

Target group: transdisciplinary academic audience; for example: physics, biology, biophysics, philosophy, psychology, medicine, neurosciences etc.

The subject of this certified course in English is to present and discuss current fundamental approaches for integrating consciousness and meaning into modern physics and science. It ties in with the current discussions on alternatives to the Copenhagen interpretation and expansions of quantum theory beyond the microscopic physical reality.

Special attention is payed to David Bohm´s approach to Consciousness (Paavo Pylkkänen) and the Generalized Quantum Theory of Harald Walach et al. Practical consequences of quantum physics are reflected (Jan Rak) and its ethical implications are discussed based on Weizsäcker´s quantum philosophy (Mathias Schüz). Johannes Heinrichs will provide a strong philosophical and ontological foundation for an integral science. The seminar will further provide an outlook for the importance of information fields in a transdisciplinary science (Marcus Schmieke).

At the end of the entire 12-part course, an online multiple-choice test will be made available that relates to the 12 webinar contents. The successful completion of this test is the basis for obtaining the course certificate from Dev Sanskriti University.

A forum is available for all participants to ask questions and exchange information.
