The Anxious Brain is a symposium connected to the exhibition of the iArts project Imagine the brain, imagine human, guided by Juul Sadee and in collaboration with the Museum Dr. Guislain. The symposium is devoted to the concept of anxiety in relation to the age old problem of mind, brain and soul. It will discuss different conceptions of anxiety, relating these to different scientific paradigms, the issue of subjective experience and thematisations in the arts. On this basis, iArts invited three philosophers to discuss the topic of 'Angst' (dread, fear, anxiety).
