podcast imagePhilip Goff: Consciousness and Galileo's Error
Philip Goff is a philosopher and consciousness researcher at Durham University, UK. His research focuses on how to integrate consciousness into a scientific worldview. Goff argues that the traditional approaches of materialism (consciousness explained in terms of physical processes in the brain) and dualism (consciousness is separate from the body and brain) face insuperable difficulties. He therefore defends a form of panpsychism, the view that consciousness is a fundamental and ubiquitous feature of the p... (2022-May-22 • 71 minutes • @Into_Impossible@DrBrianKeating)

And what insights emerge by layering networks of people, firms, states, markets, regions? We’re all riding a bucking horse; what questions can we ask to make sure that we ca...

podcast imageThe “universal grammar” of space: what geometry is innate?
Geometry might be innate in the same way as language. There are many languages, each of which is an equally coherent and viable paradigm of thought, and the same can be said for Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries. As our native language is shaped by experience, so might our “native geometry” be. Yet substantive innate conceptions may be a precondition for any linguistic or spatial thought to be possible at all, as Chomsky said for language and Kant for geometry. Just as language learning requires singli... (2022-May-20 • 32 minutes • @viktorblasjo)

Jonathan Rauch was 30 years ahead of the curve. In his book Kindly Inquisitors, written in 1993, he described the very mechanisms by which ideology can undermine both the search for truth, and the democratic ideal of free thought—mechanisms which have now become endemic in our society. But more than that, in that book, and in The Constitution of Knowledge, written in 2021 he lays out more clearly than anyone I have ever read, the philosophical and sociological basis of science. The search for trut... (2022-May-19 • 103 minutes • @LKrauss1@OriginsProject)

When we look out at the Universe, what we see is typically what we think of: the points of light. Depending on the scales we're looking at, this can come in the form of stars, galaxies, or even clusters of galaxies, but it's almost always information that comes to us in some form of electromagnetic radiation, or light. But sometimes, light can be just as informative for what either isn't there or how it's been affected by the various media that it's passed through! In the case of our own cosmic backyard, a...

Nick Enfield’s book, Language vs. Reality: Why Language is Good for Lawyers and Bad for Scientists (MIT Press, 2022), argues that language is primarily for social coordination, not precisely transferring thoughts from one person to another. Drawing on empirical research, Enfield shows that human lexicons the world over are far more coarse-grained than our perceptual faculties. Yet, at the same time, languages vary in the structure and sophistication of their representations. This means that, for instance, h... (2022-Mar-23 • 69 minutes • @NewBooksMath)
