Who Am I?
Beyond 'I Think, Therefore I Am'
Moderated by Alex Voorhoeve, PhD
London School of Economics
Can we ever really answer the long-standing philosophical question, "Who am I?" Philosophers, ethicists, and psychologists have all spoken to the difficulty of achieving genuine self-knowledge and the uncertainties of our judgment in evaluating oneself.
The final seminar in the series will bring together philosopher Elie During, cognitive scientist David A. Jopling, social psychologist Timothy Wilson, and ethicist Frances Kamm to examine the difficulty with achieving genuine self-knowledge, with an emphasis on the ways that the pursuit of self-knowledge itself plays a role in shaping the Self.
