Roundtable Synopsis

It's the stuff of our private selves, that which gives us our personal and collective identity. But just what is this thing called consciousness? Experts say that this human experience called consciousness is a mental experience, of the mind but not of the brain. Today's panelists look inside the mind and talk about just what is and what's so special about human consciousness. Joining host Robert Lawrence Kuhn are philosopher of mind David Chalmers; anthropologist Marilyn Schlitz; philosopher of mind John Searle; physicist James Trefil; and theoretical physicist Fred Alan Wolf.
