A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: Linking Belief to Behavior

Philosopher Simon Critchley, cognitive scientist Shaun Gallagher, and physicist V.V. Raman will survey how the Self is shaped by interactions with the environment, how free will, responsibility, and other traits emerge, and how character and virtue become targets for constructing the Self.
Simon Critchley, PhD, The New School
Shaun Gallagher, PhD, University of Central Florida
V.V. Raman, PhD, Rochester Institute of Technology
Esther Sternberg, MD, National Institute of Mental Health

This event is part of a 6-part series, Perspectives on the Self: Conversations on Identity and Consciousness, bringing together experts from science and the humanities for an interdisciplinary discussion of the evolving notion and experience of the Self.
