Theme: The Body

Jaffa, Israel
October 10th, 2013

About this event

The Body

• the organized physical substance of an animal or plant either living or dead;
• the material part or nature of a human being;
• a mass of matter distinct from other masses;
• something that embodies or gives concrete reality to a thing; also : a sensible object in physical space

These are just four of a multitude of definitions for the word “body.” Each of us resides in a body, yet how often do we consider it as a concept, outside of ourselves? This year’s TEDxJaffa, held at the majestic Peres Center for Peace in Jaffa, will feature speakers who will explore this concept from a variety of perspectives, ranging from medical and robotic, to sexual, metaphorical, urban, musical and more.
