“The Hard Problem of Consciousness: 300 years on”. Lecture of David Chalmers in Moscow

15 June, 2018

“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.

Why the brain processes are accompanied by conscious experience? How can the brain produce such a thing like consciousness? These are the central questions of the Hard problem of consciousness. It differs from all other problems in a sense that we don’t even know how in principle we can solve it.

The lecture “The hard problem of consciousness: 300 years on” will be focused on how actually we can solve the Hard problem of consciousness, and whether we’ve made some success in this direction since the moment when it was suggested by the author of the lecture – David Chalmers.

The lecture will be held on June 14th 5 p.m. at the Faculty of Philosophy of Moscow State University.

It will be available online on YouTube channel of the Center and on Center’s Facebook page at 5.30 p.m. June 14.
