Session 1
Perception, Concepts and the Self: Perspectives from Western Science and Philosophy
Presenters: Richard J. Davidson and Jay Garfield

Jay Garfield: Why should we care about concepts of perception and self? 
We tend to take for granted our perceptions and do not distinguish between our perceptions and reality. We also confuse a designated self from the real self. We assume that our concepts reflect reality as it is.
