Are the brain and mind the same thing? Is the universe fine-tuned for consciousness? What is consciousness? These are some of the questions that Robert Lawrence Kuhn has asked leading scientists and philosophers for years on the PBS and YouTube series Closer to Truth.
We’re excited to welcome Robert to Five O’Clock to preview a new series, Philosophy of Biology, which premiered this month on PBS. In his work, Robert asks some of the biggest questions more consistently than anyone I know.
Show titles in the new series include Why Philosophy of Biology?, Reductionism and Emergence, and Philosophy of Sex and Gender. We spend some time on all three of these.
