Course Description

Mainstream scientific materialism posits that consciousness arises from the physical brain and ceases upon death. Considerable evidence from science, medicine, and the study of extraordinary human experiences suggests that this opinion is either false or incomplete. Participants will be encouraged to examine the evidence critically and to arrive at their own opinions on the matter. Students will be asked to read short abstracts and articles and/or view videos before each class. Ten minutes of Q&A and discussion will end each class. Lecture (plus Questions); Facilitated Discussion Viewing Videos; Filed Trip(s)
