Join me for a discussion with Keith Frankish, an Honorary Reader at the University of Sheffield, UK, a Visiting Research Fellow with The Open University, UK (where I was formerly a Senior Lecturer), and an Adjunct Professor with the Brain and Mind Programme at the University of Crete, as we discuss dual process theory, the nature of beliefs, introspection, eliminativism about consciousness, the comparison between debates about free will eliminativism and consciousness eliminativism, Cartesian doubt, mental reality and weak and strong illusionism, and the Good Richard/Bad Richard problem :).
Join me for a discussion with Michael Silberstein, a professor at Elizabethtown College, as we discuss relativity theory, quantum mechanics, the relational block world, ontological structural realism, the ‘science first’ approach to ontology, string theory, the principle of sufficient reason, the multiverse, dark matter, subjectivity, the neutrality of Neutral Monism, panpsychism, Russellian Monism, the hard problem, the combination problem, and even my own views about materialism and identity theory!
Join me for a discussion with R. Scott Bakker, an author and independent philosopher, as we discuss concepts of consciousness, his Blind Brain theory of consciousness, eliminativism and illusionism, folk psychology, the intentional stance, Transhumanism, neural enhancement, Fermi’s Paradox, Greg Carrusso’s Public Health Model of criminal justice, and the semantic apocalypse.
Join me for a discussion with Monica Gagliano, a Research Associate Professor in Evolutionary Ecology, Adjunct Senior Research Fellow at the University of Western Australia, Research Affiliate at the Sydney Environment Institute, University of Sydney & Senior Research Fellow at the Biological Intelligence (BI) Lab, University of Sydney, as we discuss her work on plant cognition, plant intelligence, and the possibility of plant consciousness.
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 :)*
Join me for a discussion with Miguel Sebastian, a philosopher working as Associate Research Fellow at the Instituto de Investigaciones Filosóficas at the UNAM, as we discuss first-person representations, unconscious perception, taxonomizing representational theories of consciousness, the phenomenology of the self, regress problems for higher-order theories, teleosemantics, zombies, 2D semantics, phenomenal concepts, quantum mechanics, the Integrated Information Theory of consciousness, phenomenological sorties, and quality space theory.
