The Mind-Body Problem Down Under

A radio show on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation has done an interesting episode commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of U.T. Place's "Is Consciousness a Brain Process?". There are interviews with Smart, Armstrong, Chalmers, and others.

The audio can be found here: "The Mind-Body Problem Down Under"

I found out about this at fragments of consciousness which has additional links.

    Thanks for the link - it is a good site.

    Incidentally, my students have been looking at your site. 'We' are the Religion, Philosophy & Ethics course at the University of Gloucestershire (UK) - our course blog is at http://r-p-e.blogspot.com - you would all be welcome to join our debates (current hot topics: slavery and apologies; creationism in schools; and our xmas meal venue (maybe not quite so pertinent to those in Santa Barbara, I guess)..

    Cheers,
    Dave W.

    i think the 'he likes this site' is some kind of spam?

    maybe? Is Santa Barbara really like we imagine, in the UK, that it is? Overrun with new-age irrantionalism (outside your dept. of course) & crazy people?
