With Dr. John Horgan (Center for Science Writings at Stevens Institute of Technology)

The mind-body problem, which considers how matter generates consciousness, morality and meaning, is the deepest of all mysteries. In this talk, science journalist John Horgan will review research into the problem, which he has been tracking for 25 years. Rather than converging on a single, compelling paradigm, scientists are proposing a bewildering variety of “solutions” to the mind-body problem, including ones that abandon conventional materialism. Horgan, who directs the Center for Science Writings at Stevens Institute of Technology, will offer an upbeat analysis of the ongoing paradigm explosion.
