Event - Explorations Conference: Freedom From The Known



This year’s Explorations Conference will be held from Friday, April 26, through Sunday, April 28, 2019, at the Krishnamurti Educational Center in Ojai, California.

The topic of this year’s conference is Freedom From the Known. The conference will open with a presentation on the what, why and how of ‘freedom from the known from K’s perspective (or, more precisely, our best understanding of K’s perspective). What did K mean by the terms ‘known’ and ‘freedom’; why did K emphasize the importance of being free from the known; and how did K suggest such freedom might come about?

This opening presentation will be followed by talks that feature a diverse range of questions and contemporary perspectives on this theme from the discipline of evolutionary and developmental biology, neuroscience, psychology, sociology, and philosophy.

Donald Hoffman, a Professor of Cognitive Science at the University of California, Irvine, will be the conference’s keynote speaker. Professor Hoffman is internationally recognized as among the foremost scholars in the areas of perception, consciousness, and evolutionary science.
