Philosophy of Psychedelics

talk by Dr. Chris Letheby
University of Fribourg (MIS03 3113) and Zoom
11:00 - 12:30

Dr. Chris Letheby (University of Western Australia) will give an overview of the main arguments in his recent publication Philosophy of Psychedelics. Arguing from a naturalistic worldview, Letheby will centrally explain how the overall epistemic profile of psychedelic therapy is better than it initially appears.

 

Jason K. Day (University of Fribourg) will provide a response, focusing on the question of whether first-hand psychedelic experience itself presents any reasons to adopt the naturalistic worldview by which Letheby seeks to explain it.
