Discuss Philosophy With Professor Barry Dainton

Join us as Barry Dainton, Professor of Philosophy at Liverpool University, takes us through the nature of Self. When you think 'What am I?', what's actually doing the thinking? Is it a soul, or some other kind of mental entity separate from your body, or are 'you' just a collection of nerve-endings and narratives? Far-reaching and witty, Self is a spirited exploration of the idea that in a constantly-changing world, we and our bodies can go their separate ways.Professor Dainton will be in conversation with Dr Attila Tanyi, lecturer in philosophy at the University of Liverpool
