2410 - The “Mind Wars” Debate Over The Source of Consciousness
The prevailing opinion is that consciousness arises from the physical brain and ceases to exist when we die. This course presents a non-spiritual array of empirical and strong anecdotal evidence suggesting that such an assertion is either false or incomplete. By encouraging the suspension of disbelief in favor of critical examination of evidence, the instructor leads students to arrive at their own opinions on the matter. Students are encouraged to discuss the material, and they are expected to read short abstracts or articles and/or view short videos before most classes.
