The Science of Consciousness
April 26, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm£12
Where do our most innovative thoughts come from? Are our thoughts even our own—or, are we computers living in a Matrix like world?
Consciousness, as the platform for our experiences, is responsible for the most intimate and meaningful aspects of our existence. Philosophy has for centuries grappled with questions of consciousness, such as whether our minds are separate from our bodies, if our sense of subjectivity is a unique, unavoidable feature of consciousness, and, more recently, whether we are just a kind of computer.
Daniel Bor will outline the psychology of consciousness, of how it is surprisingly limited, and yet despite this it is responsible for our most advanced forms of learning. Join him for a fascinating evening as he unlocks the most important mysteries remaining in biological science!
