Dartington Hall Estate
This multidisciplinary conference seeks to open up a secular
space between the impoverished vison of the mechanists, and
the other-worldly ideations of the Devout. The intention being to
establish alternative possibilities which give these profound
conceptions and experiences their due weight, grant them
significance and moral meaningfulness, and at the same time
ground these experiences in, and between, bodies.
Notions of soul, spirit and spirituality are intrinsic to human
experience. On the one hand modernity and its infatuation
with the tangible and measurable, thinks of them in reductive,
mechanistic terms. On the other hand conceptions of soul,
spirit and spirituality are commonly thought to reside beyond
the material realm, as something transpersonal, and so
become associated with the after-life and the other-worldly.
