Luc Delannoy was born in Brussels, Belgium; his work is influenced in part by the Yogacara and Madhyamaka philosophical schools, Ernst von Glaserfeld, Herbert F.J. Müller, Edmond Wright, and by the quantum theories of Hugh Everett III and Michael B. Mensky. He was also influenced by Hans Georg Gadamer, Paul Ricoeur and Francisco Varela with whom he studied. 

From over 30 years he has been investigating the human mind and consciousness offering quantum perspectives on creative processes, the arts and mental health. His current research is focused on the gut microbioma and mental health.


In 2003 he founded the Instituto de Neuroartes, an international network of artists, musicians, philosophers, scientists, psychologists, medical doctors, and mental health professionals. Neuroartes is a post-materialist transdisciplinary project that reflects on consciousness, the body, the human brain, the nervous systems, the artistic expressions, and the worlds that consciousness structures and lives. 


For the last 10 years he has been researching the possible relations between quantum mechanics, the arts and mental health.

In 2018 he created the Foundation Neuroartes. 

He is also writing extensively on popular music and won world acclaim for his books on jazz. In 1994 he won the Deems Taylor Award for excellence in authorship on musical subject, and in 2000 the Berger - Berger - Carter Fellowship for his research on music.

Member of the New York Academy of Sciences, the American Philosophical Association, the Society for Comparative Studies of Chinese and Western Philosophy, and the International Association of Buddhist Studies.
