Seminar: Consciousness and Education

I was approached by the student organizers of the what-is-education working group to take part of ‘Science Week’ at the University of Sussex. Fergus, one of their organizers, explained the aims of this week to me as follows:

“Out of the discourse on the future of education at Sussex arose the what-is-education working group, which hosts seminars to discuss the present & future of higher education, without sloganeering, and hopefully with deep analyses of the changing relations between the public, students, universities, commerce and the government that will last, and will inform discourse on universities development over the next few years.”

Accordingly, on Wed. 19th of May I presented a seminar entitled “Consciousness and Education”. Some of its themes closely resonate with what is going on at the demonstrations at Middlesex, which you can watch here:
