Details of tonight's “Inner West Council Philosophy Talk"

Title: “Your Brain and You“

Speaker: Dr Markos Valaris (UNSW)


When Descartes in his Meditations confronted the question “what am I?”, he famously answered “a thinking thing”, or a mind. He took this answer to be incompatible with the mind being a material thing at all. These days we are much more comfortable with taking our minds to be material, and essentially identifying them with our brains. This talk will examine both of these steps. Should we think of our minds as material? And, if so, should we think of them as exhaustively realised in our brains?
