The Cycloptic Vision of Modern Science

Conferences, Science and Religion Comments Off on The Cycloptic Vision of Modern Science

Life in general is the idea of an embodied activity that produces and preserves itself. Kant called life a natural purpose [Naturzwecke], an embodied intentional or deliberate activity. Its end or goal [preservation of itself] is given in its beginning, and thus it is teleological in nature. It is both cause and effect of itself, i.e. it is characterized by circular causality. It is not like matter whose movement is caused by another that is outside or different from itself.

Dear Members,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the International Conference on “Is Science able to explain the Scientist? (Science and Scientist – 2013)” to present your most recent research results and ideas, and to share your knowledge in this field of science. ‘Science and Scientist – 2013’ is the premier forum for understanding the limitations of casual or mechanistic determinism in modern science and thereby exploring the Vedantic Paradigm as an alternative.

‘Science and Scientist – 2013’ will bring together leading Biologists, Engineers, Scientists and Academicians from around the world. The main goal of this conference is to provide a platform for the academic, scientific and industrial community to cultivate the proper spirit of inquiry for understanding ‘Life and Its Origin’ using science based progress in their respective research areas. The conference greatly encourages topics, in such areas as: ‘Failure of Biologism or Biological Determinism’, ‘Failure of Genetic Determinism – Life Beyond Genes’, ‘Debunking Darwinism’, ‘Scientific Critique of Science’, ‘Man and Machine’, ‘Logic of Life’, ‘Cognitive Biology’, ‘Freewill’, ‘Soul Hypothesis’, etc. The aim of the conference is to bring together worldwide leading researchers, developers, practitioners and educators interested in advancing the state of the art in ‘Life and Its Origin’ for exchanging knowledge that encompasses a broad range of disciplines among various distinct communities. It is expected that speakers will highlight new prospects for scientifically understanding life based on 21st century biology. The theme for this conference is innovative and meant for inspiring the researchers to understand the scientific validity of ancient Vedantic wisdom and thus confidently practice its conclusions by implementing them in their own lives. This conference shall provide a new forum for discussions on ‘Harmony of Science and Religion’. The conference will take place in Synergy Institute of Technology, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India, on December 08, 2013, and will be hosted by the Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Institute, Siliguri, West Bengal, India and Bhakti Vedanta Institute of Spiritual Culture and Science, Priniceton, NJ, USA in collaboration with Synergy Institute of Technology, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India. The meeting will include keynote and plenary lectures, oral presentations, and posters.
