Watch the video of lecture on quantum origins of consciousness of Stuart Humeroff! It’s a fascinating lecture about 20 years of work together with sir Roger Penrose.
In this lecture David Chalmers considers a progress in solving the mind-body problem, outlines contemporary theories of consciousness and their advantages and disadvantages. He claims that the core problem of these theories is the Hard problem of consciousness – why the processes in the brain are accompanied by conscious experience? Maybe if we take consciousness as something fundamental, we can solve that problem. And Chalmers lays out several prospects how to do it.
“The Hard Problem of Consciousness: 300 years on” is a lecture that will be held at the MSU June 14 by David Chalmers, one of the most prominent and distinguished contemporary philosophers. Details in the news.
