About the Event

In his new book Being You: A New Science of Consciousness, pioneering cognitive neuroscientist Anil Seth draws on twenty years’ original research and collaborations with scientists, psychiatrists, brain imagers, virtual-reality wizards, mathematicians and philosophers. Seth puts forward a new theory about how we experience the world that should encourage us to view ourselves as less apart from and more a part of the rest of nature. Consciousness, he shows, is more about being alive than being intelligent.

Broadcaster Razia Iqbal will join the author on stage in the IMAX cinema, along with a number of guest speakers via live video link, to discuss the intersections between consciousness and philosophy, mathematics, Artificial Intelligence and more.

Remote guest speakers appearing by video link include:

  • Professor Helen Steward—Professor of Philosophy of Mind and Action
  • Professor Sir Roger Penrose—British mathematician, physicist, philosopher of science and Nobel Laureate in Physics, and proponent of the Penrose-Hameroff theory of quantum consciousness.
  • Dr Susan Schneider—Founding director of the Center for the Future Mind at Florida Atlantic University.
