The Passionate Mind: Oct. 9-11 Utah Symposium in Science & Literature

Sept. 23, 2003 - How does the human mind make sense of itself? What is self? Is it me, or is it my brain? How are emotion and cognition - the process of knowing, of having perception, memory and judgment - tied to our notions of ourselves?

-- "Being No One: Consciousness and the First-Person Perspective" by philosopher Thomas Metzinger at 9:30 a.m. MDT Saturday Oct. 11.
