Previous – The ‘Art of Thinking’ about the Mind and the Brain, Leicester Secular Hall,19th March 7.30pm
Philosopher DR GREG Scorzo will lead a talk and discussion about:
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).
