Number 5 - How Do You Explain Consciousness? David Chalmers
David Chalmers is an Australian philosopher and cognitive scientist specializing in the area of philosophy of mind. This topic ties really well into our discussion around the mind/body problem and many of the thought experiments we discussed. It seems fitting to do this topic this week because we all got into it last Thursday. It underlines the concept of what consciousness is. He uses some very technical terms and one of your goals is to try understand or research what they are. However, I think the overall message of this wonderful TED talk is one we need to think about!
