Screening: The Philosopher

Lunch Matters

Wednesday, March 18, 2015
1:00 PM–2:30 PM

With the advances made in neuroscience, do we need philosophers? Rebecca Goldstein addresses this and other questions in her new book Plato at the Googleplex and here, in person, with one of neuroscience’s leading lights, Antonio Damasio. This is a filmed conversation from last years’ Brainwave series. Includes a post-screening discussion moderated by Thomas Reardon.
