Aspects of human behaviour are now being successfully traced back, with ever-greater frequency, to neuronal processes. This raises major challenges for the social sciences and humanities – disciplines in which such issues have been addressed in the past – but it also provides a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary research. With the "CIN Dialogues at the Interface of the Neurosciences and the Arts and Humanities", the Werner Reichardt Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and the Forum Scientiarum are taking an importantstep in this direction. While exploring the boundaries between disciplines, unexpected perspectives are being opened up, providing new ways of posing old questions and of finding answers to them collectively.
At the University of Tübingen, internationally renowned neuroscience research meets a strong tradition in the humanities and social sciences. Thus, there can be no better place for interdisciplinary dialogue and collaboration across disciplinary boundaries.
The CIN Dialogues seek to open up the exchange between neuroscience, the social sciences and humanities beyond the purely academic sphere by inviting the general public to participate.
