Mind Blowing Event!

On Wednesday 16th December Prem’s Artist Residence Thailand in partnership with Real Talk Philosophy hosted a truly mind expanding event at Food4Thought restaurant. The keynote speakers were  philosopher and broadcaster Nigel Warburton and Professor of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience Anil Seth. It was a real honor to hear these two experts discuss consciousness and answer complex questions from the audience. The discussions that the evening engendered covered a huge range of issues relating to consciousness, are all animals conscious in some way? What do we mean by higher consciousness? How close are we to being able to have empirical data about our consciousness? Is it possible for a machine to be conscious?

Our thanks to all the Prem students who attended, and the teachers that chaperoned. Particular and fulsome thanks to our Creative Director Alex Soulsby for instigating and organizing  this event in coinjeunction with Real Talk Philosophy.
