The Origins of the Self: India and Greece

E-mail

Saturday 21 June 2014: 9.15 - 5.00

SOAS, London

This Conference aims to explore the origins of ideas about the self, with a particular focus on ancient India and ancient Greece, with view to exploring the striking similarities,  as well as the differences, in the ways in which conceptions of the Self emerged in the two civilisations.

The Conference is intended to be accessible to an audience with wide-ranging interests.   It should be of particular interest to students of history, anthropology, religion, sociology and psychology.   Time will be allocated to open debate to enable those attending to discuss the issues raised by the key speakers.

The Academic Director of the OCBS - Prof Gombrich will be delivering a talk at this event.
