Session 1 - Is the mind a machine?
Nothing is more topical than the spectre of ‘artificial intelligence’ and the grim picture of humanity it suggests.

He lifts our vision of language from a personal experience to a participation in something bigger than all of us – transcendence and the divine mind.
