Creation of Creativity: Heuristic Potential of Holotropic States

Oct 1, 2017



In the lecture we attempt to bridge a conceptual gap within the consciousness research between the scientific-materialist approach from the “outside” or from the “third-person” position on the one hand and the transpersonal exploration relying on experiences on the „inside“ or in the „first person“ position on the other, by developing a unifying conception of creativity as implied by modern Platonism in the spirit of A.N. Whitehead. We take a close look at D.C. Dennett’s explication of evolutionary bottom-up emergence of consciousness in which the author employs his idea of cognitive stances resulting, thanks to his Platonic inspiration, in a non-reducible model based on the Allegory of the Cave.
