Dr. Bernardo Kastrup

Author / Philosopher / Scientist

Dr. Bernardo Kastrup has degrees in computer science and philosophy. He writes in a way that laypeople can understand exploring how science and philosophy point to the fact that Idealism, the fact that consciousness precedes the material and is, in fact, all there is, makes much more sense than materialism.

Bernardo Kastrup is the executive director of Essentia Foundation. His work has been leading the modern renaissance of metaphysical idealism, the notion that reality is essentially mental. He has a Ph.D. in philosophy (ontology, philosophy of mind) and another Ph.D. in computer engineering (reconfigurable computing, artificial intelligence). As a scientist, Bernardo has worked for the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and the Philips Research Laboratories (where the 'Casimir Effect' of Quantum Field Theory was discovered). Formulated in detail in many academic papers and books, his ideas have been featured on 'Scientific American,' the 'Institute of Art and Ideas,' the 'Blog of the American Philosophical Association' and 'Big Think,' among others.
