The Concept of Spirit: A Scientific Perspective with Dr. Kamran Sedig

Spirit is an important, yet elusive, concept to explore. Due to historical reasons and current materialistic outlook, the concept of spirit is not considered worthy of serious intellectual exploration. Indeed, in today’s atheistic atmosphere, it is shunned. Often, the concept of spirit is examined through a theological lens. In this presentation, I will explore the concept of spirit, as presented in the Bahá’í Scriptures, from a scientific perspective. We will see why spirit is the foundational ground upon which an undivided, rational, scientific whole can be constructed.

Dr. Kamran Sedig is an associate professor at Western University in Computer Science and Information and Media Studies. He received his M.Sc. from McGill in artificial intelligence and his Ph.D. from UBC in applied cognitive sciences. He has published more than 90 scientific articles in international journals, conferences, and books.
