In this episode of Mind Matters News, co-hosts Robert J Marks and Angus Menuge interview Dr. Jonathan Loose, another featured author included in the recent volume Minding the Brain. The book delves into the age-old question is the mind more than the brain? Loose’s chapter is titled “The Simple Theory of Personal Identity and The Life Scientific.” The trio discuss the concept of personal identity and its relationship to consciousness and scientific discovery. They explore the distinction between identity at a time and identity over time, as well as the differences between simple and complex views of personal identity. They also examine the implications of recognizing an immaterial substance as the basis of personal identity and its relevance to scientific observation and logical reasoning.
