Arvidson presents and publishes

October 28, 2016

Sven Arvidson, director and associate professor of Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies and senior faculty fellow of the Center for Faculty Development, published “Interdisciplinary Research and Phenomenology as Parallel Processes of Consciousness” in Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies. The article identifies analogies between interdisciplinary studies and philosophy in order to encourage communication between practitioners. Arvidson also presented “Reverence and the Field of Consciousness” at the annual meeting of the Society for Phenomenology and the Human Sciences in Salt Lake City, UT. The talk showed how reverential awe, religious or non-religious, is an ordered experience and in particular reminds humans of their place in the order of existence.
