Cognitive Scientist Rethinks Boundaries of Being

“As our worlds become smarter, and get to know us better and better,” writes cognitive scientist Andy Clark, “it becomes harder and harder to say where the world stops and the person begins.”

What role does one’s environment plays in shaping the nature of conscious experience?

Clark, the chair of logic and metaphysics at Edinburgh University, will discuss this and other related topics in his lecture, “Natural-born Cyborgs? Reflections on Bodies, Minds and Human Enhancement,” on Wednesday, Oct. 20, at 7:30 p.m. in Davidson Auditorium in the School of Management at The University of Texas at Dallas.

This event is part of UT Dallas’ “Incite Your Curiosity: Exploring Human Enhancement” lectures, presented by the Center for Values in Medicine, Science and Technology. The lecture is free and open to the public.
