Description

A main intellectual scandal today is that we do not have, in philosophy or neurobiology, a generally accepted account of consciousness.  In this lecture, John Searle will offer the philosophical core of such an account, and explain the difficulties in getting a neurobiological account.  Along the way, he will expose half a dozen really outrageous mistakes about consciousness.
