OLLI Course | Brief Peeks Beyond

Stephen Kercel talks about his Fall 2021 course, "Brief Peeks Beyond." This 8-week course will run on Friday afternoons from 12:45 - 2:45, beginning September 17, 2021.

Course Description

This course is an exploration of the book Brief Peeks Beyond. In the words of its promotional material: “In this pioneering, original and brilliantly written book Bernardo Kastrup is very critical of the still widely accepted materialist approach to science while making use of many convincing rebuttals of materialist counterarguments.” It “explores the nature of reality, state of our society and culture, the influence of mainstream media and the nature of free will.”
