"Mind and Life" XXVI "Mind, Brain and Matter" (Day 2 afternoon), Drepung Monastery, Mundgod, India (January 18, 2013) PARTICIPANTS Tenzin Gyatso His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Arthur Zajonc, PhD Arthur Zajonc was professor of physics at Amherst College from 1978 to 2012, when he became President of the Mind & Life Institute. He received his B.S. and Ph.D. in physics from the University of Michigan. He has been visiting professor and research scientist at the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris, the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics, and the universities of Rochester, and Hannover. He has been Fulbright professor at the University of Innsbruck in Austria. Michel Bitbol, PhD Michel Bitbol is presently Directeur de recherché at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, in Paris, France. He is based at the Centre de Recherche en Epistemologie Appliquee (CREA) in Paris He teaches the Philosophy of Modern Physics to graduate students at the University Paris I (Pantheon-Sorbonne). He was educated at several universities in Paris, where he received successively his M.D. in 1980, his Ph.D. in physics and biophysics in 1985, and his "Habilitation" in philosophy in 1997. Geshe Thupten Jinpa Geshe Thupten Jinpa is the principal English translator to the Dalai Lama since 1985. He has translated and edited more than ten books by the Dalai Lama including The World of Tibetan Buddhism (Wisdom Publications, 1993), A Good Heart: A Buddhist Perspective on the Teachings of Jesus (Wisdom Publications, 1996), and the New York Times bestseller Ethics for the New Millennium (Riverhead, 1999). Geshe Thupten Jinpa was born in Tibet in 1958. He received his early education and training as a monk at Zongkar Chöde Monastery in South India and later joined the Shartse College of Ganden monastic university, South India, where he received the Geshe Lharam degree. He taught Buddhist epistemology, metaphysics, Middle Way philosophy and Buddhist psychology at Ganden for five years. Jinpa also holds B.A. Honors degree in Western Philosophy and a Ph.D. degree in Religious Studies, both from Cambridge University, UK. Over the last several years, largely through the work of the Emory-Tibet Science Initiative, Science for Monks, and Science Meets Dharma, science instruction has been given to a small group of monastic scholars. Very recently, the decision was made to require science education for Geshe degrees at Tibetan monastic universities, and to facilitate all monastic students being introduced to modern science and the profound philosophical and ethical issues raised by science and technology. In recognition of this fact, this conference is taking place at one of the historically important Tibetan academic institutions, Drepung Monastery in Mundgod, India (Mind & Life Institute, 2013). In this video, i had cut out some passages with long traductions to the tibetan language (only in part 1/2).

Symposium - Percier: Antiquity and Empire Jeffrey L. Collins Professor, Bard Graduate Center Jean-Philippe Garric Curator, Charles Percier: Architecture and Design in an Age of Revolutions; Professor, History of Architecture, University of Paris I, Panthéon-Sorbonne Iris Moon Visiting Assistant Professor, School of Architecture, Pratt Institute “New Heads for Old Bodies: Percier’s Designs for the French RevolutionUlrich Leben Research Scholar and Visiting Professor, Bard Graduate Center Darius Spieth Professor, Art History, Louisiana State University Jean-François Bédard Associate Professor, School of Architecture, Syracuse University This Symposium brings together experts and scholars in the fields of Architecture, Design, Art History and History. This is the first large-scale exhibition to survey the magnificent range of projects undertaken by the French architect and designer from the end of the eighteenth to the beginning of the nineteenth century. Although largely remembered for his close collaboration with Pierre François Léonard Fontaine (1762–1853)—together they defined the Empire style and created the decorative program of Napoleon’s reign—Charles Percier’s (1764–1838) artistic style was unique, complex, and ever-evolving. The exhibition breaks with the tradition of considering Percier and Fontaine together. This choice, shaped by the discovery of new documents relating to the production of the two partners, allows a better understanding of Percier’s multifaceted artistic practice. By focusing on his seminal works, the exhibition will demonstrate the diverse and extraordinary creations of an artist whose work brilliantly bridged ancien régime court culture and the industrial production of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Prof. John Rassias, Professor of Languages at Dartmouth College, presents at TEDxDartmouth on April 17, 2010. http://www.dartmouth.edu/~tedx/johnrassias/ John Rassias is a revolutionary thinker in the field of education, who has devoted his life to improving the methodology of foreign language teaching; he is the inventor of the renown Rassias method and an extraordinarily engaging speaker. A native of Manchester, NH, Prof. Rassias graduated summa cum laude from the University of Bridgeport, and, as a Fulbright scholar, studied at the Université de Dijon in France, where he received his doctorate. He also did research at the Sorbonne, studied French drama, and acted in Paris. In 1964, he began a long relationship with the Peace Corps language programs, serving as Director of Language Programs at Dartmouth College, consultant and trouble-shooter for Peace Corps programs throughout the world, and Director of the first pilot program of languages for the Peace Corps in Africa. He joined the Dartmouth faculty in 1965, and adapted the Rassias Method to a new academic community in 1967. Since his approach has been utilized by all language departments (including Chinese, French, German, Modern Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish), the number of foreign language majors has steadily increased. This statistic stands out as a startling reversal of the national trend in recent years of declining enrollments in foreign language courses. Teachers in other colleges introducing the Rassias Method report similar renewals of interest. Prof. Rassias is the author of numerous articles; the publisher of The Rams Horn (a journal for teachers of language and culture) and The Rassias Connection (a newsletter of the Rassias Foundation), as well as the author of three text books in French and Greek. He is completing The Unzipped Mind, a book covering different modes of communication, a philosophy of teaching, and comparisons with historical and mythological exemplars. Prof. Rassias lectures throughout the world to various companies and organizations. Topic titles range from Communication in a Perilous World, One Nation Divided by One Language, Love in Eighteenth Century France, to Greek Mythology: Our Past, Present, and Future.

One of the 20th century’s most prolific scholars of Islamic mysticism, Henry Corbin (1903-1978) was Professor of Islam & Islamic Philosophy at the Sorbonne in Paris and at the University of Tehran. (Iran) Corbin’s central project was to provide a framework for understanding the unity of the religions of the Book: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. His great work: “Alone with the Alone: Creative Imagination in the Sufism of Ibn ‘Arabi “is a classic initiatory text of visionary spirituality that transcends the tragic divisions among the three great monotheisms. Corbin’s life was devoted to the struggle to free the religious imagination from fundamentalisms of every kind. Mystic, philosopher, poet, sage, Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi is one of the world's great spiritual teachers. Ibn 'Arabi was born in Murcia, Spain in 1165 and his writings had an immense impact throughout the Islamic world and beyond. The universal ideas underlying his thought are of immediate relevance today. Music: Armand Amar

Your mind will always be there - it is the most important thing, and we must take care of it properly. Download Mindworks free mindfulness meditation app at www.mindworks.org, on the Apple Store https://goo.gl/dQ7IKR or Google Play https://goo.gl/RsTgD0. Everything in our lives is constantly changing. All of our possessions, friends, things that we want or don’t want are in constant flux. Our mind is the one thing that is always present. Most of us spend all of our time taking care of all the things that are changing and are left behind, but we don’t take care of the one thing that stays with us - our minds. How to master your mind with meditation, and how to have a healthy mind, is to pay attention to this simple fact. In meditation, we focus our minds on one point, our breath. Gradually our minds relax and we are able to focus more, and we become aware of the spacious quality in our minds that we already possess. With awareness comes the ability to let things come and go as they arise and gradually change. In this video, Trinlay Rinpoche explains how to develop true mind health - learning to let your mind be through meditation. This is truly how to take care of your mind, which is where true freedom can be gained. Mindworks is a nonprofit organization created by several friends whose lives have been transformed and enriched through meditation. Trained by some of the world’s most preeminent Buddhist meditation masters, we want to share these techniques and knowledge with others. Our mission is to foster greater happiness and well-being by making meditation relevant for today’s challenges and accessible to anyone, anytime, anywhere. Download our free mindfulness meditation app at www.mindworks.org. Trinlay Rinpoche is a highly trained and accomplished meditator who has studied with some of the world’s greatest meditation masters since childhood. Born to an American mother and a father who was a long-serving member of the French Parliament, Trinlay Rinpoche began traditional spiritual training in India at the age of three, returning to France as a teenager to pursue a Western education at the Sorbonne and other institutions in Paris and England. Fluent in English, French and Tibetan, Rinpoche teaches meditation throughout Europe, the US and Asia. A scholar of philosophy, history and philology, he is an influential voice in dialogues with neuroscientists on Buddhist versus Science theories on how the mind works. Trinlay Rinpoche lives in Paris with his American wife, Giselle de Saint Phalle and their new son Victor.

As new models of scholarship entered England in the middle of Elizabeth's reign, scholars began to take a more critical approach to the origins of Britain. Who were the ancestors of the English? Where did they come from? What language did they speak? What was their way of life, their religious beliefs? The traditional views of the British past became discredited, as more systematic methods of enquiry were introduced. After William Camden's seminal book 'Britannia' was published in 1586, a new type of scholar began to emerge: the antiquary. The achievements of men such as John Selden, James Ussher, William Dugdale and John Aubrey will be briefly assessed, and their (often surprising) discoveries will be presented, for the enjoyment of a modern audience. Graham Parry is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London. Franco-British History seminar series

Link to article: http://goo.gl/QenqzS In this video Jordanna discusses her forthcoming article in Antipode 46:3, "Narratives of Modernity, Masculinity and Citizenship amid Crisis in Abidjan's Sorbonne." She situates the Sorbonne, a public speaking area in the center of Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, within the context of the political and military conflict that led to its rise and ultimate demise. Next, she positions the Sorbonne as a social space where men reframed the crisis narrative and their place in it, drawing on a legacy of Abidjan as the "Paris of West Africa" to articulate themes of modernity, masculinity and citizenship. Literally and ideologically, predominantly un- and underemployed men centered themselves from the global and urban periphery. They enacted hyperbolized modern masculinities in opposition to their former French colonizers and migrants from regional countries. Jordanna divides her article in two parts. In the first, she reviews the crisis literature in the African city with a focus on informality and gendered conceptions of work. In the second, she analyzes Sorbonne sociality under the rubric of politics, a space where men placed themselves and the city at the center of global affairs; poverty, a place where men shared in their experience of poverty while simultaneously generating fantasized identities within a community of insiders; and penises, a masculinist and misogynist space where men asserted their rightful place in the city as men and citizens. Jordanna is a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse. She studies the livelihoods and lifestyles of men in Abidjan's informal economy. In addition to Antipode she has published in, among other places, Poetics, Contexts, Ethnography, The Black Scholar, Global Dialogue and The Africa Report. She is currently preparing her book manuscript, tentatively titled, "'I will be VIP!': Culture, politics and masculinity on neoliberalism's periphery."

Is it helping solve development challenges? A new kind of African citizenry is consolidating itself right now, and it has a lot to do with the Internet. With each new mobile phone, with each new wireless connection, with each new social media interaction, the continent continues to embrace the most disruptive digital technologies. The growing accessibility of digital solutions, many of them homegrown, provides new models and opportunities for self-organized communities, political activism, and economic growth. It also raises new questions: who is providing the access: governments, local telcos, or American conglomerates? As mobile money innovator M-Pesa turns ten this year, hot on its heels are an impressive number of “Made in Africa” solutions that claim to revolutionize the education, agriculture, health or energy industries. Digital technologies in Africa are all about being frugal, agile, and collaborative. It’s about starting from scratch, doing more with less, and growing faster. But are they really helping to solve Africa’s global challenges and, in return, do they provide a new model for development? In 2011, MIT Sloan Associate Professor Tavneet Suri wrote that “technological progress or productivity improvements are the only way to have long-run sustained increases in income.” Still, many observers are disappointed in the pace of change, as many underserved African populations fail to see the new jobs and tangible results that are coming out of this new wave of tech. This roundtable at MIT will explore and interrogate the socio-economic, cultural and geopolitical consequences of Africa’s leapfrog into new technologies. SPEAKERS Claude Grunitzky A lateral thinker and successful serial entrepreneur, Claude is the founder of TRACE.

A Mellon Islamic Studies Initiative public lecture by Monica M. Ringer, Visiting Professor in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago and Associate Professor of Middle Eastern History at Amherst College French religious studies scholar Ernest Renan's famous lecture given at the Sorbonne in 1883, "Islam and Science," caused enormous consternation in Muslim intellectual circles, and launched a series of refutations. In many ways, the debates surrounding Renan's argument prefigured the "Clash of Civilizations" debate engendered by Samuel Huntington's infamous article published in 1993. In this talk, Professor Ringer examines one of the least well-known of the refutations, written by the Imam of the St. Petersburg mosque, Ataollah Bayezidof. Despite many shared premises, the two scholars' central disagreement surrounds the nature of Islamic exceptionalism. Recorded in Swift Hall's Common Room on January 17, 2014.
