Philosophers and theologians from Russia, Great Britain, the United States and other countries open a philosophy school in Malta to answer questions about how a person remains the same in his or her life, whether reincarnation, the preservation of the person after death, its existence in a mechanical body and what role in this play soul and God.

Mind, Brain and Free Will. Research Seminar of the Center for Consciousness Studies

The seminar has been devoted to the book of the distinguished Oxford philosopher Richard Swinburne “Mind, Brain and Free Will”. Swinburn takes an unpopular position for nowdays, defending the substance dualism and proving the existence not only of the soul, but of God. His ideas do not find wide support among the staff of the Center, nevertheless, we consider it important to discuss those views that do not evoke agreement. This is one of the most important foundations of scientific dialogue.

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."

Subject of Experience. Seminar of the Center for Consciousness Studies

This seminar is devoted to the ideas of Galen Strawson, one of the most original contemporary thinkers. Strawson believes that real materialism is materialism, which recognizes the reality of consciousness, and does not deny it. Therefore, panpsychism is the real materialist theory. Also, Strawson proposes to reconsider the concept of self or subject, considering that the confusion arising in connection with the problem of identity of personality is related to the fact that we mix several concepts of the subject together. He does this using his own method - cognitive phenomenology.
The keynote speakers are Artem Besedin (PhD in Moscow State University and MCCS), Vadim Vasilyev (Ph.D. in Moscow State University and MCCS).
The seminar was also attended by Professor R. Howell, Ph.D. A. Kuznetsov, Ph.D. E. Loginov, A. Tanyushina, A. Pavlov, undergraduate and graduate students of the Faculty of Philosophy of Moscow State University.
