Consciousness

Study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality and existence.

Philosophy is a discipline that exercises reason and logic in an attempt to understand reality. The discipline aims to answer fundamental questions about knowledge, life, ethics, morality and human nature.

The study of consciousness remains one of the pre-eminent challenges of the 21st century. This philosophy course on consciousness will take an interdisciplinary approach, including recent work in philosophy of mind, neuroscience, sociobiology and medicine. The session will assess the current state of knowledge about what consciousness is, how it functions to produce the reality of ourselves and how it mediates our understanding of the world around us. We will also look at speculations about the impact of quantum theory on theories of mind and the perceived unity of consciousness.
