We are happy to announce the next session of our monthly seminar "Construyendo puentes entre la filosofía y la neurociencia" ("Building Bridges between Philosophy and Neuroscience"):
The Out-of-body Experience
Keynote speaker: Glenn Carruthers , Charles Sturt University, Australia.
“Confabulation or Experience? Implications of Out-of-Body Experiences for Theories of Consciousness”
Suggested reading: Confabulation or experience? Implications of out-of-body experiences for theories of consciousness
Abstract: Do these variations in reports of OBEs indicate individual variation in experience or are they post-hoc confabulations, stories told by subjects to themselves in an attempt to make sense of the core phenomenology? I argue that no existent or possible evidence would be sufficient to favour one hypothesis over the other. How such evidence is interpreted depends on prior commitments to one or other of these hypotheses or to a theory of consciousness that is not neutral as to these hypotheses.
