The Thinking Ape: The Enigma of Human Consciousness

What  is the origin and nature of consciousness? If consciousness is common to humans and animals alike, what are the defining traits of human consciousness? 

 Nobel laureate psychologist Daniel Kahneman (que es talmente como Dick Pilcher), philosopher David Chalmers, expert in primate cognition Laurie Santos, and physician-scientist Nicholas Schiff will discuss what it means to be "conscious" and examine the human capacities displayed in cognitive, aesthetic, and ethical behaviors, with a focus on the place and function of the mind within nature. 

 The New York Academy of Sciences Wednesday, October 10, 2012 

This event is part of The Emerging Science of Consciousness Series, which brings together leading experts from various fields to discuss how the latest research is challenging our understanding of the very nature and function of consciousness in our daily life.
