On the last times of our history there have been lot of discoveries in neuroscience and physics-chemistry. Just to remember relativity and quantum mechanics, and how the brain is not only a device to pick up information but creates reality.


Is there any philosophy about the Nature of reality taking into account those discoveries?

    You wrote "the brain is not only a device to pick up information but creates reality." i think most would agree that our brain influences our perception of what reality 'is', and that such perception can influence reality by how we then react to that perception (at least for some definition of 'reality', whatever that might be); but is that all you mean, or do you mean something more than that? – Alexis Mar 8 '18 at 6:14
  • The problem is that the scientific discoveries you mention are largely ignored in academic philosophy while they make no difference to the perennial philosophy. The latter allows for these discoveries but it doesn't seem quite right to say it takes account of them. It's a mightily odd thing that relativity and QM have made no difference to philosophy. – PeterJ Nov 19 '18 at 10:58
