All we know comes to us via our mental experience: our thoughts, feelings, perceptions, and conscious
the subjective experience of consciousness. Some argue that the investigation of this mind-body
connection is the most profound question in all of science. We will address this question from the
perspectives of biology, philosophy, physics, and psychology --- cognitive science, broadly defined.
Students interested in all areas of the sciences, arts, and humanities are encouraged
to enroll. This seminar is part of the Connections@Cal initiative.
