The Theory and Practice of Cosmic Ascent: Comparative and Interdisciplinary Approaches - 19-20/06/20
This conference will bring together specialists from a number of fields and methodological approaches with a view to expanding understanding of the significance of cosmic ascent-accounts. Papers are welcome from any methodological background, and neurological, cognitive, and other quantitative and qualitative scientific approaches are particularly welcome. The Mediterranean focus of the above description should by no means be taken to rule out any relevant geographical area; Manichæan or Islamicate texts from Central Asia, for example, are of obvious pertinence to the Mediterranean cosmic ascent topos.
LUGAR/LOCATION/LUOGO: Long Room Hub, Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland)
ORGANIZADOR/ORGANIZER/ORGANIZZATORE: Professor John Dillon (Emeritus, TrinityCollege, Dublin); Nicholas Banner (Trinity College, Dublin).
