Theme for this winter:
Exploring the Self
Recent research on the brain and into human psychology may have startling implications for how we think about our selves, our supposed freedom of choice and our responsibility for the direction of our lives. We take on this topic with help from people whose careers have been spent in such exploration as well as from philosophy of the past.
