Evan Thompson Live!

Join me for a discussion with Evan Thompson, a Professor of Philosophy at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver and an Associate Member of the Department of Asian Studies and the Department of Psychology (Cognitive Science Group), as we discuss Biopsychism -the view that mind and consciousness are co-extensive with life.

One thought on “Evan Thompson Live!

  1. appreciate you folks doing this sort of public service,sounds like via his instrumentalist take on science I can add at least part art of Evans’ take to my neo-pragmatist tool kit.
    On a more general podcast note next time you have someone who wants to discuss the transfer/transmission of “information”, from say plants to other plants or between neurons or the like, I’d appreciate knowing if this is just a way of characterizing certain interactions of the physical structures (chemical interactions, etc) in question or rather a way of positing the role of some other/additional thing (or force or_____) and if so what is it literally composed of?
    thanks!
