Awakening from the Meaning Crisis 1

January 22, 2019

This series explores the connections between meaning, wisdom, altered states of consciousness, and human cognition throughout history. Vervaeke discusses the “meaning crisis” faced by modern society and proposes that shamanism, psychedelics, and ancient practices like meditation may offer insights into overcoming this crisis. The goal is to provide a scientific account of how cultivating wisdom can alleviate suffering caused by a lack of meaning.
