Bernardo Kastrup – The Radical View of Mind Only

Bernardo Kastrup is a philosopher of mind and the leading voice for metaphysical idealism – the view that all of reality is essentially mental. He holds PhDs in Philosophy and Computer Engineering, combining rigorous academic discipline with extensive practical experience. As a scientist, he has worked for the Europen Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and the Phillips Research laboratories where the “Cassimir Effect’ of Quantum Field theory was discovered. He’s also had a rich career in technology where he founded the parallel processing company Silicon Hive which was acquired by Intel in 2011. Currently, he serves as the Executive Director of the Essentia Foundation, an organization dedicated to presenting scientific and analytic evidence that challenges traditional materialism in an accurate yet accessible way. He is the author of over 10 books including “Why Materialism is Baloney”, “The Idea of the World” and the upcoming “Analytic Idealism in a Nutshell.” In this episode, we discuss why the brain does not generate the mind, how to avoid cognitive entrenchment, how idealism impacts meaning in life, suffering and happiness, psychedelics and self-deception, If enlightenment is real, and so much more.
