About the Event

Join us live and in-person at Blackwell’s on Broad Street for Philosophy in the Bookshop with Nigel Warburton. Nigel will be interviewing Anil Seth about his groundbreaking new study in consciousness, ‘Being You’

Being You is not as simple as it sounds. Somehow, within each of our brains, billions of neurons work to create our conscious experience. How does this happen? Why do we experience life in the first person? After over twenty years researching the brain, world-renowned neuroscientist Anil Seth puts forward a radical new theory of consciousness and self. His unique theory of what it means to ‘be you’ challenges our understanding of perception and reality and it turns what you thought you knew about yourself on its head.
