Title: Claudia Passos (NYU Center for Bioethics)
"Are Infant Conscious?"
Are infants conscious? What is infants’ conscious experience like? These
questions raise epistemological problems that are closely related to the
traditional problem of other minds. I argue that newborn babies are
conscious at birth and that it is possible to know something about what
infants’ experiences are like. I propose a methodology for investigating
infant consciousness, and I present two approaches to determining whether
infants are conscious. First, I consider behavioral and neurobiological
markers of consciousness. Second, I discuss what the leading theories of
consciousness, including both philosophical and scientific theories,
predict about infant consciousness. Finally, I discuss the phenomenal
structure of infant consciousness.
When: Wed 15 Aug 2018 13:00 – 14:30 Eastern Australia Time - Sydney
Where: Sydney Uni, Muniment Room
