Do you ever get tired of talking explicitly about consciousness? Join me for a discussion with Romina Padró, director of the Kripke Center at the Graduate Center of CUNY, as we discuss the epistemology of logic and the adoption problem -the question of whether we are able to consciously adopt an ‘alternative’ system of logic.
Join me for a discussion with Michael Rodriguez, an artist at Laguardia Community College, as we discuss all things art. *note* the audio for this one was recorded on my desktop microphone and so is not the greatest, sorry! -but the video has lots of art in it :)*
