Reflections On Consciousness: Meaning and Life Purpose
For the fall semester 2009, twenty-six undergraduate students at George Mason University explored ancient traditions and modern scientific insights about human consciousness. Starting with the premise that consciousness relates to "what we know and how we know it," the course reviewed principles from neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, and religious studies. - This book is a collection of student insights and experiences around the themes of consciousness, meaning and life-purpose. Readers will be inspired to see the depth of personal reflection and the quality of insight that comes from these young adults. - The course was one offering from George Mason University's Center for Consciousness and Transformation. The Center's mission is to understand the nature and effects of individual and group consciousness and its role in transformative learning and social change.
