“Responsibility without a Self," a talk by Monima Chadha

Friday, September 9, 2022 at 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Rockefeller Hall, 374
Central Campus

Please join Cornell's Society for Buddhist Studies for the first lecture of the '22-'23 academic year, by Prof. Monima Chadha. Prof. Chadha is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Monash University, Australia, and the inaugural Jack Karp Fellow at Cornell's Sage School of Philosophy.

Prof. Chadha researches the philosophy of mind in the classical Indian and contemporary western traditions. Her book, Selfless Minds (to be published by Oxford University Press), draws on Abhidharma-Buddhist philosophy and contemporary cognitive science to provide an account of conscious experiences, in particular subjectivity and agency, without positing the existence of subjects and agents.

While at Cornell, Dr. Chadha will be working on Vasubandhu’s Karmasiddhiprakaraṇa, “The Treatise on Action”, to develop an Abhidharma Buddhist account of moral responsibility without a self.

The talk is sponsored by the GPSA-FC, the Sage School of School of Philosophy, and the Department of Asian Studies, and is open to the entire Cornell community.
