A Philosophical Perspective on a Neuroscientific Perspective


Here is a link that delves more into the Philosophical aspects of what Ben and I talked about today.   It's from the BBC, so it's replete with fancy British accents.  I like to listen to British people wax philosophic when trying to sleep sometimes, so, maybe try that.

Thank you all so much for your attention and participation today.   Hope you enjoyed it.

  1. I did, very much. Still wondering if the ultimate goal of neuroscientific explanation should be the explaining AWAY of "folk wisdom" (including religion and other colloquial forms of discourse) or simply the addition of another descriptive vocabulary - another tool for the toolkit, but not an exclusive one. And I still wonder if the "god helmet" and other experiential catalysts (drugs, exercise...) are "artificial" in any fixed sense?

    What is it about an English accent that sounds intrinsically authoritative?
