The Institute of Philosophy, RCH, cordially invites you to its upcoming talk Prof. Slobodan Perovic (University of Belgrade, Department of Philosophy) Neutral Monism and Niels Bohr's Complementarity.


Philosophers have substantially considered the key ideas of Neutral Monism, a philosophical view attempting to overcome the Mind/Body problem, as it was initially developed by Ernst Mach and Bertrand Russell. Yet similar ideas are also found in some key considerations of a few prominent physicists who developed quantum mechanics. We will show that Niels Bohr’s principle of complementarity (of the particle and wave aspects of microphysical phenomena) is a gradually developed and experimentally motivated account very close to Russell’s and Mach’s key ideas on Neutral Monism.

Date: 22 November 2022 (Tuesday), 2pm

 Location: Institute of Philosophy, Research Centre for the Humanities, 1097 Budapest, Tóth Kálmán Street 4., 7th floor, Room „Trapéz” (B.7.16)
