Miguel Sebastián British Academy visit

Dr Miguel Sebastián, from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, is visiting the Philosophy Department as part of his project about perceptual discrimination with Dr James Stazicker, funded by a British Academy Newton Mobility grant. Last week Miguel gave a talk entitled “First-person Perspective in Experience: Self-Involving Representationalism” at the Department’s visiting speaker series. On Tuesday 14th June he and James present their joint work in progress at the Centre for Cognition Research (2pm in HumSS 73). Their talk draws on predictions of Signal Detection Theory to criticise some philosophical theories of consciousness, as well as making some more positive proposals about what consciousness really is.
