In this IONS presentation, Walter J. Freeman examines intentionality from many angles, with a primary focus on physiology. Consciousness has been characterized by intentionality, so Walter takes us on a fascinating tour of philosophy, history, and medicine, in order to answer the question “what is intentionality”?
Former IONS president James O'Dea interviews eco-philosopher Joanna Macy, PhD, who is a scholar of Buddhism, general systems theory, and deep ecology. She is also a leading voice in movements for peace, justice, and a safe environment. Interweaving her scholarship and four decades of activism, she has created both a ground-breaking theoretical framework for a new paradigm of personal and social change, and a powerful workshop methodology for its application.
