Philosophy of Mind in SF

Science fiction
2:00 PM, Monday 2 Apr 2018 (1 hour)
Mount Newman
What is the mind? How closely does the mind depend on the biological nature of the brain? The mind/body split has a long and not always noble history, which is what makes it such a fascinating topic in SF. Can a computer have a mind? Do the old dichotomies of mind/male, body/female even make sense in a post-Human future? The panelists lead us into SF that’s focused on thinking about thinking.
