“I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.”

:: Max Planck 
(Where is Science Going?: 1932)

“I am convinced that an important stage of human thought will have been reached when the physiological and the psychological, the objective and the subjective, are actually united, when the tormenting conflicts or contradictions between my consciousness and my body will have been factually resolved or discarded.”

:: Ivan Petrovich Pavlov 
(Physiology of the Higher Nervous Activity (1932), 93-4.)
Dear friends and colleagues,


We are happy to extend to you an invitation to attend the “8th International Conference on Science and Scientist” (Science and Scientist 2020), which will be held online, from 20 to 22 December, 2020.

‘Science and Scientist’ conferences have been organized since 2013 and attracted participants from all around the world to discuss progress in their state of the art research on the deeper reality of Life, Consciousness, and origin of Life and Matter. The theme of Science and Scientist 2020 is Understanding the Subject/Object, Mind/Body Unity. Its sessions will include the recent and most important conceptual development on fundamental questions in the various thematic sessions, including: ‘what is Matter?’; ‘what is Life?’; ‘origin of Matter, Consciousness and Life’; ‘Subject-Object relationship’; ‘Mind-Body relationship’; ‘distinction in nature of unity in Mechanical, Chemical and Biological systems’ and so on. Science and Scientist 2020 will highlight new conceptual and methodological developments, and most original findings and hypotheses as well as original ideas presented by a new generation of scientists and philosophers.

All scientists and philosophers interested in Science and Scientist 2020 will find detailed information about the conference at; registration and payment procedures are available on the conference website. Abstracts for consideration as Oral Presentations via Zoom will be evaluated by the members of the scientific committee on the basis of conceptual and scientific merit, and new insights as well as practical application.

We look forward to welcoming you at Science and Scientist 2020!
