The Meaning of Meaning (Online)

D. Beth Macy

Event details

What is meaning? Asked this question, theoretical physicist David Bohm once answered, “Meaning can’t be defined.” How paradoxical: something so essential to our understanding of life – something that enables our ability to respond to the world around us – isn’t definable. Though undefinable, said Bohm, it can be discerned. Meaning pervades everything, linking us as human beings to higher orders and the intelligence of the universe. Meaning, in fact, could be a “first principle” of the cosmos. In this lecture, we will identify elements of Bohm’s vast explorations in physics and consciousness that guided him toward the discernment of meaning in the cosmos, and to its discernment in our own lives.
