14 – 17 April 2021
In recent years a resurgence of studies into psychedelic experience has arisen in the cognitive sciences to such an extent as to become known as The Psychedelic Renaissance. The focus of these scientific studies has been upon the immediate medicinal value that psychedelics may bestow; but the value that the examination of such exceptional experiences may bestow upon the philosophy of mind, phenomenology, ethics, and academic metaphysics is a field yet to be mapped. To end, we are pleased to announce a conference on The Philosophy of Psychedelics: Exploring Frameworks for Exceptional Experience – to take place at the University of Exeter in the UK on April 14–17, 2021. Group discussions will be an important feature of this conference, and we look forward to learning from everyone who comes.
