In conjunction with Quincy University’s Psychology Club, the QU Town and Gown Reading and Lecture Series presents “Thinking About Thoughts of Minds and Brains”—a panel discussion on March 26 beginning at 7:00 in Francis Hall room 432 on the QU campus. The discussion will feature three QU faculty members as panelists: Dr. Jonathan Miles, assistant professor of philosophy; Dr. Brian Nolan, assistant professor of psychology; and Dr. Kimberly Hale, associate professor of biological sciences.
The open discussion will reflect on various topics relating to the current understanding of the human mind. Questions will be addressed through philosophical, psychological, and biological perspectives. Initial questions slated for discussion include: What is the mind? What is a theory of mind and how does that guide our behavior? How do our minds come to be the way that they are? Is the human mind like a computer? What happens to the mind when the brain is damaged?
