Patricia Churchland's new book: BRAINTRUST
The Science Network (TSN) has recorded a conversation on the brain and morality at Columbia University between Roger Bingham, neurophilosopher Patricia Churchland and philosopher Jesse Prinz. Bingham followed up with Churchland for a discussion about "Braintrust" as a part of TSN's Science Studio series. TSN has also filmed an informal presentation Churchland gave on “Braintrust” at Warwick’s bookstore in La Jolla, California. Link to these videoshere
