Colin Blakemore at HowTheLightGetsIn Festival

Thursday 9 April 2015

Colin Blakemore will be speaking at HowTheLightGetsIn, the world’s largest philosophy and music festival, this May. Bringing together world-leading scientists, musicians, philosophers and politicians including Roger Penrose, Natalie Bennett, Paul Krugman, Fiona Shaw, Mike Skinner, Polly Toynbee, Lianne La Havas, Tariq Ali, Lawrence Krauss, and John Searle for debates, talks and wild parties. This year’s programme examines the elements of reality that might soon turn out to be illusions.

Colin Blakemore will be joining Simon Blackburn and Mary Midgley in ‘In Search of the Self’ to debate if the self is a fantasy, talk on what makes the human mind unique, and also debate whether we should leave postmodernism behind.
