If minds are not just brains, what might they be?

What philosophical presuppositions would have to change for mind-body dualism and a theory of survival to be scientifically viable?

The Gwen Tate Memorial Lectures are held bi-annually and report recent research into topics relating to life after death.

David Rousseau is Projects Director of C-FAR, a Systems Philosopher and advocate of the value of systems approaches in analysing key problems in the Philosophy of Mind. He will show how different philosophical presuppositions lead to different ways of interpreting evidence about the nature of minds and consciousness. He will outline which presuppositions have to be changed in order for mind-body dualism and a theory of survival to be scientifically viable.

He will advocate the desirability of a naturalistic (rather than a supernaturalistic) model of mind-body dualism and will give an example of the novel insights that follow from pursuing such an approach.
