19:00 Category: LSS - Secular Hall - Public event[19:30] LSS: Greg Scorzo - The art of thinking (discussion series)
Description:
THE ART OF THINKING – GREG SCORCZO - SPRING 2019 The 'Art of Thinking' sessions are run by philosopher Dr Greg Scorzo, editor of 'Culture on the Offensive' (https://www.cultureontheoffensive.com/). In this session Dr Scorzo asks "Are the mind and the brain identical?" In this session, we will discuss the basic positions in the debate over whether or not the mind is identical to the brain. We will discuss materialism (the view that the mind is identical to the brain), property dualism (the view that the mind is composed of the same substance as the brain, but contains its own distinct properties), substance dualism (the view that the mind is distinct from and can exist independently of the brain), and eliminative materialism (the view that there are no minds, only brains) Followed by open exploration, discussion, debate and tea. No experience of academic philosophy is needed. Each session stands alone – come to as many as you wish. Admission £3 on the door, no booking necessary.

In the interest of freethought and free speech we also list other selected events of interest - no endorsement or responsibility is implied. Always check details with the organisers.
