It’s Personal: Paul and Neuroscience on Personal Action and the Intersubjective Self

Friday, September 9, 2016, 12PM | Ahmadieh Family Lecture Hall

Event Navigation

The Franklin Humanities Institute is sponsoring a presentation, “It’s Personal: Paul and Neuroscience on Personal Action and the Intersubjective Self,” by Susan Eastman, associate research professor of New Testament at Duke Divinity School. This presentation explores models of the body as self-relation and as other-relation in interpretations of Paul, and in Vittorio Gallese’s work on mirror neurons, and asks how the interface between them might inform accounts of personal action. How might questions of personhood evolve in an interdisciplinary neuroscience and religious studies perspective? The talk will conclude with consideration of strategy and structure for a Bass Connections research team on interdisciplinary personhood.
