An Interview with Bernardo Kastrup
By Neil Johnston
Bernardo Kastrup is a metaphysical philosopher with a PhD in Computer Engineering, specializing in artificial intelligence and reconfigurable computing. He has worked in some of the world’s foremost research laboratories, including the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and Philips Research, and his writings explore the “thoughtscapes” of philosophy of mind, ontology, neuroscience of consciousness, psychology, foundations of physics and philosophy of life.
He has a penchant for oxymorons and thought experiments. His published titles—Meaning in Absurdity, Dreamed up Reality, Rationalist Spiritualty, More than Allegory, Brief Peeks Beyond, and Why Materialism is Baloney—embody spectrums of thought and experience, always reaching for something beyond the “known” that calls to be touched; the space between extremes that paves a middle way into a fruitful no man’s land of “metaphysical speculation.”
