Conversation with Anil Seth, Being You
From SDG Academy
Jeffrey Sachs speaks with neuroscientist Anil Seth, author of Being You: The New Science of Consciousness.
In this episode, Jeffrey Sachs and Anil Seth explore the hard problem of consciousness. Because the deep puzzles of consciousness can’t be solved head-on with existing scientific methods, Seth aims to gradually “dissolve” the problem by looking at levels of consciousness, the content of consciousness, and the mystery of the sense of self.
Together, Sachs and Seth unpack several of the hard questions: How can physical beings have subjective experiences? How can we measure consciousness? Is consciousness the feeling of being alive?
