The Metaphysics of Uploading. Eric Olson

This Lecture Eric Olson gave at the Moscow State University on May 15, 2019, as a guest of our Center.
"Transhumanists want to free us from the constraints imposed by our humanity by extracting information from the brain, transferring it to a computer, and using it to create a purely electronic person there.  That is supposed to move us from our human bodies to computers.  This presupposes that a human being could literally move to a computer by a mere transfer of information.  The talk is about whether this is metaphysically possible."
