You simply must listen to this bizarre and shocking podcast interview on consciousness between the materialist neuro-biologist/philosopher Dr. Patricia Churchland and Skeptiko host Alex Tsakiris. If you ever thought science was opened-minded, this highly placed academic will prove you wrong. She may be the only example I’ve come across so far that could convince me that consciousness is merely the by-product of the brain! Alex does a terrific and quite courageous job here. Having worked with him myself (click here for my own Skeptiko interview), I know him to be well-informed, extremely intelligent, and congenial.
