The lecture was held at the MSU on June, 14.
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.
