Neurophilosophy on the way of solving problems

15 June, 2018

We are glad to offer you an interview with one of the most prominent contemporary philosophers, Patricia Churchland, which was held at the Moscow Center for Consciousness Studies in June 2015 during her visit to Moscow. The interviewers were Vadim Vasiliev and Dmitry Volkov.

Churchland is trying to combine philosophy, neuroscience and evolutionary biology within consciousness studies. In her interviewm she discussed the following questions: What is eliminativism and its difference from the identity theory? Could armchair philosophy and conceptual analysis be worth applying to the consciousness problem? In what way should philosophers and cognitive scientists communicate? What is the meaning of life? And many others questions.

Enjoy watching!
