Gentle Bridges: Conversations with the Dalai Lama on the Sciences of Mind Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is based on a week-long series of daily meetings between Western scientists and His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the political and spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhists, who was awarded the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize. The discussions took place in the meeting room of the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, India, in the relaxed atmosphere of a living room conversation. Topics ranged widely over mind and brain, the self, perception, memory, evolution, artificial intelligence, and the sources of knowledge in science and Buddhism. The various themes have been woven into clear and accessible presentations and dialogues that convey the lively flavor of the original meetings.

Synopsis:

What is the essence of the mind? Could computers ever have consciousness? Can compassion be learned? When does consciousness enter the human embryo? These are just some of the many questions that were discussed during a historic meeting that took place between several prominent Western scientists and the Dalai Lama. Gentle Bridges is a chronicle of this extraordinary exchange of ideas.
