Possibilianism

Dr. David Eagleman, a neuroscientist at Baylor Med, best-selling author, and thought-provoking speaker, gave several lectures during the neuro course spanning blocks 5 and 6. During his lectures, he provided several anecdotes which forced us to expand our minds to comprehend the mystery behind things like synesthesia. However, it wasn’t until a few months later that I came across his philosophy of “Possibilianism.”

Dedicating his working career to the natural sciences, Dr. Eagleman has been able to articulate a perspective that not only I but countless others can relate to. Regardless of your faith, I strongly recommend you watch the following video in its entirety.

The fundamental creed of Possibilianism centers around not subscribing to anything. Using our ever-growing pool of scientific knowledge, we can narrow down the likelihood of certain possibilities and accept the fact that there are things which we just don’t know. There’s a lot more to it, so please watch the video! 馃檪

  1. I’ll have to say that I watched his speech from TEDX a month back and loved it. I’m really excited for when we get to hear from him.

    great post as always.

    • In retrospect, I really think that neuro/neuroanatomy is easily the best taught course at BCM. You can’t go wrong with experts like Goodman, Thalmann, Eagleman, and Owens. Hang in there dude! 馃檪
