On consciousness with Drs. Nigel Warburton and Anil Seth – Real talk Chiang Mai

December 2

This week, Real Talk Philosophy and Artist Residency Thailand present: Expert Voices on Consciousness with guest speakers Dr. Nigel Warburton and Dr. Anil Seth.
Are you conscious? How do you know? What is consciousness? Why does it exist? Are all things conscious, or only some? Will it be possible one day to “upload” consciousness? Is there a relationship between consciousness and God?
Join Real Talk Chiang Mai every Wednesday at Food4Thought for meaningful conversation, unbiased talks, games, music, art, panelist Q&As, and more exploring contemporary divisive issues from gender pronouns to veganism.
Drink, think, discuss!
