CONSCIOUSNESS & MORALITY

A back and forth interview with Jack Symes of the Panpsycast Podcast. We start with our reflections on doing public philosophy and how we respond to criticism, the move on to the philosophy of consciousness. We end with a discussion of how we think about our minds might impact our thoughts on morality and I'm challenged with a trolley problem: One human being vs five Vulcans who think, but do not feel pleasure or pain.
