Virtual reality. Gender identity. Somatic psychology. Housing policy amid freakish wealth. These areas and issues form some of the most preeminent frontiers of our time, areas where human society is expanding into the unknown. Lighting the way forward into these rich and uncharted territories are some of the most courageous and preeminent thinkers alive today. But who are they? Where can we find them?
Turns out, some of them are right under our noses, here at JFK University. Even better, the Top Minds video series is now bringing these top minds, free of charge, straight to anyone with internet and a sense of curiosity. “These are experts in their fields talking about nuanced topics that they’re very well-known for,” explains David Valentin, producer of the interview-style series. And they’re not just sequestering themselves within the ivory towers of academia. “All the instructors appearing in this series love sharing their expertise as a way of being of service to their communities.” In a broader sense, the series is about keeping information transparent and as available to the public as possible.
What is the psychology behind virtual reality and can it really facilitate greater empathy in humans? How does technology affect the way we inhabit our bodies? What would it look like for policy to be post-gender? Each installment of the series will offer unique insight into some of the most important questions facing humans today.
