Process philosophy, Buddhism and Western science
This is a talk I gave to a small group of academics and Buddhist practitioners and teachers at UC Santa Barbara. The group's purpose is to discuss the intersection of Western science and Buddhism. I suggested that process philosophy, the Western tradition championed by Alfred North Whitehead, Henri Bergson, David Ray Griffin and many others, is a very good bridge between these domains, with some interesting commonalities and distinctions. Many of the pictures got lost in this pdf conversion, but the message still comes through.
