Greetings, Loominaries of Philadelphia! I will be heading your way to give a talk tomorrow (Thursday) at the Center for Neuroscience & Society at the University of Pennsylvania. My talk will be entitled, "Soul Made Flesh: The Origin of Our Brain-Centered World." I'll argue, as I did in the eponymous book, that as we grapple with the implications of twenty-first-century neuroscience, we'd do well to cast our minds back 350 years ago, when scientific revolutionaries first discovered that the brain was not a bowl of curds. The details: When: Thursday, April 07 2011, 4:00pm - 5:30pm Location : Silverman Hall, Room 245A, University of Pennsylvania (3400 Chestnut St.) Contact : [Image: The frontispiece of "The Anatomy of the Brain," reproduced in Soul Made Flesh]
