Lewis Lancaster on Buddhist philosophy, perception and cognitive neuroscience

This is a clip from Lewis Lancaster's Burke Lecture: Buddhism in the Global Age of Technology (April, 2008, UCSD). The entire lecture is available online via UCSD-TV, Youtube, and other sources. I use this clip in various settings, including my (David Peterzell) course on Sensation and Perception at UCSD, and in presentations on Integrative Psychology. Lancaster (UC Berkeley emeritus) does a remarkable job of synthesizing Buddhist philosophy of perception and relating it to cognitive neuroscience. I believe that this type of material belongs in textbooks on perception, alongside Democritus, Socrates (and Plato), Descartes, Gustav Fechner, Matrix philosopy, and more.
