Podcast: Is there a Master Behind Our Mind?

Consciousness is a fascinating area of study currently that has overlap with neurology, psychology, and philosophy. It’s ripe for deep theological conversation and (I think), deep apologetical arguments for God as well. Enjoy this “Big Conversation”!

The Big Conversation – Episode 3 | Season 4

What does the science of brain chemistry and consciousness tell us about the nature of our mind and our cosmos? 

Recorded live at The British Library London, leading psychiatrist and philosopher Dr Iain McGilchrist, author of the influential books ‘The Master and his Emissary’ and ‘The Matter With Things’ engages in conversation with Christian neuroscientist Dr Sharon Dirckx author of ‘Am I Just My Brain?’. They discuss brain science, consciousness and God.
