Dr. Philip Goff is a philosopher of consciousness at Durham Univercity and author of Galileo's Error: Foundations for a New Science of Consciousness.
This week’s podcast is all about Panpsychism! I spoke with philosopher Dr. Philip Goff, who teaches at Durham University who specialises in this area of research.Philip the author of Consciousness and Fundamental Reality and Galileo’s Error and has published more than forty academic papers. His writing has also appeared in many newspapers and magazines, including The Guardian, The Times Literary Supplement, and Philosophy Now. Panpsychism argues that traditional approaches of materialism (consciousness can be explained in terms of physical processes in the brain) and dualism (consciousness is separate from the body and brain) face insuperable difficulties. In this podcast we discuss this idea more in depth an the implications it might have on scientific study and the way we relate to the world as a whole!

Flattery works – if you know how to do it right. So this episode begins with a discussion on how to use flattery and why it is such a powerful tool in getting people to like you. Interestingly though, flattery doesn’t work on everyone and I’ll tell you who. http://changingminds.org/techniques/general/ingratiation/flattery.htmMath is an important part of almost every aspect of your life. You probably just don’t think about it. In fact there are ways to use math that can help you save time and money and make better decisions. Kit Yates joins me to explain the importance of math in our everyday lives and how it works. Kit is a senior lecturer in mathematical biology at the University of Bath in the UK and author of the book The Math of Life and Death (https://amzn.to/35aW5pI).Now that it is a new year and a new decade, it is probably a good time to let go of that grudge you’ve been holding on to. Listen as I explain the amazing benefits of NOT holding a grudge compared to the real downside of holding on to those thoughts of anger, resentment and revenge. http://www.drugs.com/mca/forgiveness-letting-go-of-grudges-and-bitternessWhat is consciousness? In short it is the essence of who you are at any moment. But where does it come from? Where does it go when you die? These are questions I tackle in this episode with Philip Goff.
