Being You: A New Science of Consciousness

Sunday 26 Jun
15:00-16:00
Garden Tent

Anil Seth’s radical new theory of consciousness challenges our understanding of perception and reality, doing for brain science what Richard Dawkins did for evolutionary biology.

Being you is not as simple as it sounds. Somehow, within each of our brains, billions of neurons work to create our conscious experience. How does this happen? Why do we experience life in the first person? After over twenty years researching the brain, world-renowned neuroscientist Anil Seth puts forward a radical new theory of consciousness and self. His unique theory of what it means to ‘be you’ challenges our understanding of perception and reality and it turns what you thought you knew about yourself on its head.

Anil Seth is in conversation with Jim Al-Khalili, the renowned theoretical physicist, author and BBC broadcaster.
