Other Ways of Knowing: The Future of Knowledge and the Superhumanities

Presentation by Jeffrey Kripal, Associate Dean of Humanities and Chair in Philosophy and Religious Thought at Rice University

Dr. Jeffrey Kripal specializes in the study of extreme religious states, putting “the impossible” back on the academic table again. He is presently working on a three-volume study of paranormal currents in the history of religions and the sciences collectively entitled, The Super Story. His book The Flip chronicles a shift from a materialist worldview to one in which mind is fundamental and cosmic.

This lecture is an extension of the Mystics and Visionaries: Art and Other Ways of Knowing seminar taught by Jackie Tileston in Fine Arts, and reflects a partnership between the Department of Fine Arts and the SNF Paideia Program to explore ideas of nonlinear modes of being and knowing.

Co-sponsored with the Stuart Weitzman School of Design
