I agree, Erik. And you have implicitly stumbled onto the purpose of this group. All innovations within science, every academic pursuit, which adds to our consensual objectivity is an instance to philosophize anew. Philosophy is not dead, far from it. And nowhere are there more new philosophic questions to discuss then in the wake of neuroscience's progress.

 

Likewise, there are many instances when words from within past philosophic traditions offer completely new perspectival frameworks on neuroscientific hypotheses.

 

Both are, I think, necessary pursuits for human expansion. Not to mention, that the philosophic inquiry into scientific achievement seems to serve only to expand and optimize our cognitive prosthetics.
