Tomorrow night (21 September), at The Gate from 7.30pm, with discussion led by Jean Jacques Hodge.
Are we, increasingly, “common-sense materialists” when it comes to the mind? Do we tend to agree with statements such as “the mind is the brain”, and to accept, for example, that neuroscience can tell us more about who we are than introspection ever can? In this Cafe, we are invited to consider whether materialist views of the nature of mind stand on genuinely solid foundations, and whether different approaches may have more to offer, when confronting the problem of consciousness.
