Speaker: John Horgan (Director, Center for Science Writings, Stevens Institute of Technology)

Abstract: 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 recent research into the problem. Are scientists progressing toward a solution, or do their results bolster the so-called “mysterian” position that the mind-body problem is unsolvable?
