2-hour session

If you are unable to attend the live session, the recording will be available.

We are sorry to announce that Iain McGilchrist is indisposed and will be unable to give what was to be the final presentation in our ‘What Is Consciousness?’ series. Iain is rescheduling his talk for September, and we will be notifying everyone once we have confirmed the date. In its place we have gathered together a number of our presenters for a final panel.

We have now reached the end of our ‘What is Consciousness?’ event. We have explored the many aspects of the topic through the eyes of scholars some of whom had opposing viewpoints but all of whom were both compelling and enlightening. We are pleased that so many of them have agreed to take part in a final panel to explore and deepen some of the themes that have emerged in the presentations.

We will begin with the panelists responding to prepared questions on such topics as the relationship of matter and consciousness, how quantum mechanics might shed light on the ‘block universe’ conceptualization, and how patterns of activation of the human brain during cognitive performancemight shed light on consciousness.

This will be followed by a Q&A session open to everyone. Make sure you have your questions and comments ready.
