CMSA Colloquium: What is Mathematical Consciousness Science?
SEMINARS, CMSA EVENTS
Johannes Kleiner - Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich
In the last three decades, the problem of consciousness - how and why physical systems such as the brain have conscious experiences - has received increasing attention among neuroscientists, psychologists, and philosophers. Recently, a decidedly mathematical perspective has emerged as well, which is now called Mathematical Consciousness Science. In this talk, I will give an introduction and overview of Mathematical Consciousness Science for mathematicians, including a bottom-up introduction to the problem of consciousness and how it is amenable to mathematical tools and methods.
