Time & Location

Nov 19, 2024, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM GMT+1

MQ Academy | Space Donation Based, Schaffhauserstrasse 78, Room 108, 8057 Zürich, Switzerland


Implicit in the practice of science is a metaphysical belief that has hardly ever been scrutinized. However, inspired by the pressing challenges related to quantum mechanics and consciousness, more and more scholars are open to pondering radical new metaphysical ideas. 

As a result, idealism, a consciousness-only view of reality, is witnessing a renaissance in science and philosophy.


In this workshop, you will:

  • Discover the history of idealism
  • Be introduced to modern variations, including syncretic idealism
  • Be exposed to the defects of scientific metaphysics
  • Entertain the concept of empirical metaphysics

The seats are limited to 24, so reserve early! We would request a recommended space donation of CHF 20-25. This event is part of the "Consciousness Studies" course, held (almost) every Tuesday in Fall '24 at MQ Academy, that delves into diverse perspectives from science, philosophy, psychology, and shamanism.


Dr. James B. Glattfelder is an author, academic, quantitative researcher, and entrepreneur. He holds an M.Sc. in theoretical physics next to a Ph.D. in the study of complex systems, both from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. His research focuses on decoding complexity, the metaphysics of existence, and the limits to knowledge while being concerned about societal and environmental challenges. For over a decade, James worked as a quantitative researcher, both in traditional finance and in the distributed ledger ecosystem, where he was involved in various startups. In 2025, his latest book will appear, called "The Sapient Cosmos: What a Modern-Day Synthesis of Science and Philosophy Teaches Us about the Emergence of Information, Consciousness, and Meaning."
