"If we want a science of consciousness, we need to find a way of putting consciousness back in the physical world." ~ Philip Goff
Philosopher of consciousness at Durham University, Philip Goff's research focuses on integrating consciousness into our scientific worldview. Goff is a defender of panpsychism as the solution to the hard problem of consciousness.
Goff's 2019 book Galileo's Error sets out his defence of panpsychism rooted in an analysis of the work of Arthur Eddington and Bertrand Russell. We will hear more of Goff's perspective in our debate on the framework of beliefs.
"Suddenly the universe appears in a new and much more revealing perspective." ~ Phillip Pullman
