Consciousness - Podcast

LSE, “The Forum,” 6.7.17

Other than humans, which animal species are conscious? When did consciousness first evolve, and what is its function? What brain structures are required for consciousness? Recent developments in the neuroscience and evolutionary biology of consciousness promise to shed new light on these tantalising puzzles. In this panel discussion, we consider what we know, what we don’t know, and what we may never know about the origins of consciousness. David Papineau, Professor of Philosophy, Kings College, London; Professor of Philosophy, City University of New York Graduate Center.
